Event has passed

CAMDEN — Environmental educator Hannah Kiermayr will lead a presentation about her experiences traversing the Appalachian Trail at Merryspring Nature Center, Tuesday, Feb., 5 at 12 p.m. 

“The vastness of the Appalachian Trail extends past the Trail itself,” said Kiermayr, in a news release.

In this presentation, she will share photos, experiences, observations, and perspectives about her journey across the entire Appalachian Trail in 2017.

She will reflect about the landscape of the Trail itself, as well as tell stories about the hikers, “trail angels”, hostel owners, and stewards she met along the way. She hopes to inspire others to form and sustain a connection to their own landscapes. 

Hannah “Pearl” Kiermayr is an environmental educator who has spent time as a trip leader and open-air classroom instructor at Tanglewood 4H Camp and Learning Center in Lincolnville. She has completed several long-distance thru-hikes, and is planning on completing the Pacific Crest Trail in 2019.

She currently lives and works in Kingfield. 

This lecture is part of the Winter Talk series at Merryspring, sponsored by Allen Insurance and Financial.

Admission to Tuesday talks is $5, with free admission for members of Merryspring. 

Merryspring is a community nature center offering walking trails, cultivated gardens, wildlife, and ecology and horticulture educational programs all year round. The park is located at the end of Conway Road, just off of Route 1 in Camden behind Hannaford Shopping Plaza.
