BELFAST — Celebrate Earth Day, Saturday, April 20, with A Walk for Mother Earth, in Belfast.

The walk is being organized by an ad hoc group of individuals who want to honor the place that they live in, and recommit to caring for the earth and the waters that sustain them, according to a news release.

Meet at Moose Point, at the water's edge, at 9 a.m. for an opening circle that will include recognizing the ancestral territory of the Wabanaki people and their caretaking of this land and waters.

Then walk to the east side of the foot bridge in Belfast, approximately 3 miles, where anyone who wishes to celebrate Earth Day by walking across the footbridge in community, can join.

The group expects to arrive at the east side of the footbridge at around 10 a.m., and welcome everyone to join in crossing where the Passagassawakeag meets the Penobscot Bay, celebrating the waters.

Parking is limited both at Moose Point and the footbridge so carpool, be dropped off, plan ahead.
