FRYEBURG, Maine — Tin Mountain Conservation Center and Upper Saco Valley Land Trust will be co-sponsoring “Kezar Pond Ecological Exploration” with Dr. Rick Van de Poll on June 15, 2019, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Fryeburg, Maine.

The morning of the event, participants will meet at Hemlock Bridge on Frog Alley in East Fryeburg, Maine. Dr. Rick Van de Poll will provide an in-depth look at Kezar Pond, an oligotrophic glacial lake located off the old course of the Saco River.

Participants will learn about river and pond ecology, water quality parameters, and aquatic vegetation, as we enjoy a paddle around the pond. By the end of the program, we’ll have learned all the information necessary for monitoring small water bodies.

There is a small program fee of $10 for this event. Tin Mountain has boats available to rent or you may bring your own boat and gear. Space is limited, so call (603) 447-6991 ahead of time to reserve your spot.  Drinking water, a snack or lunch, sunscreen and a hat are advised.
