Grand Lake Stream/Downeast Lakes Land Trust
Saturday, May 26
Guide: Colin Brown
Enjoy a flatwater canoe excursion through one of the finest wetland ecosystems in Maine, guided by a DLLT staff member. Big Musquash Stream winds through over 5,000 acres of unpatterned fen and freshwater bogs, providing excellent opportunities for potential species that include swallows, Bobolink, sparrows, bitterns, raptors, and ducks. Canoes, paddles, and PFD’s are provided.
This event is free, but space is limited to 12 participants.
Meet at launch site in Grand Lake Stream (GPS 45.2341403, 67.6734547):
From Princeton, follow US 1 north for 3.5 miles to Passamaquoddy Indian Township, and turn left onto Grand Lake Stream Rd. In about three and a half miles you enter Grand Lake Stream and the road becomes Milford Rd. About a half mile later, exactly 4.1 miles from US 1, you will arrive at a wide-open marsh, with a bridge that crosses a flowage. We will launch from that bridge. Look for DESBF signs! Nearest restrooms: Princeton gas stations and grocery store.
