In recognition of Earth Day, join Nancy Wigley, Appalachian Mountain Club Life Member/Naturalist, and Jane Harding, Cape Hike Chair, to hike and remove litter at Four Ponds Conservation Area. This area, seemingly untouched by human hands, will reveal secrets of its past uses. You will walk where President Grover Cleveland and Calvin Coolidge once fished for brook and rainbow trout, stand on a bluff above one of the ponds, and view the remains of the fishing camp where their catch was cooked and enjoyed. The walk will take you along paths by the ponds and will follow the river on its journey to the sea.
This area is used by fourth-grade students studying forest ecology, and the Appalachian Mountain Club will set a good example to show that this area is not the place to dispose of trash. Participants should bring gloves; plastic bags will be provided.
