Goodbye To Our 41 Acre Field School

After seven busy years, we will no longer be offering programs at our 41 acre field school. Today we’re closing on an adjacent piece of property, and now we’ll be offering programs at our 61 acre field school.

If you know the lay of the land around here, the purchase includes the land from the canoe landing upstream to just beyond where the beaver pond stream empties into the river. It includes the cabin on the river, but the cabin is beyond repair and will be knocked down and removed next year. We will be maintaining the field around it. The purchase increases our frontage on the Aroostook River to around 2000 feet.

We’re excited about it and want to thank all of you who have supported us over the years. And if you’ve never been here consider this an invitation to come and see a beautiful spot on the prettiest river in Maine.

    Almost had me pulling my hair out Tim. I thought you weren’t going to teach any more courses up there period. Heart sank to my toes my friend. That would have been bad as I haven’t made it up there yet…..but will.
    Congrats on the new land, I’m sure you are pretty happy. Let me know if I can help in any way up there.

  • Thanks Derek. Hope you can make it up sooner than later.

    LOL Same as Derek above! But congrats on the new addition.

  • Thanks Matt!

    Congrats Tim!

  • Thanks Mark!
