MONTVILLE — On Wednesday, Nov. 15, from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m., Midcoast Conservancy will offer a special opportunity to hike with Moe Martin. 

Martin and his family have been stewards of their land, 350 acres in Montville, for decades, tending the hundreds of acres of woodland. Martin attended the University of Maine-Orono where he studied forestry.

“He is thoughtful and observant, someone who loves and has protected his trees and land in an exemplary fashion by planting thousands of trees to create climate resilience,” said Midcoast Conservancy, in a news release.

He also propagates and plants many species that are not currently native to Maine but which thrive here and may one day be native with climate change. Martin grew up roaming, working on and studying the land and loves sharing stories and information about his life’s work there.

The hike is limited to 15 people to ensure a personal and engaged experience for all.
