Coastal Mountains Land Trust Series: ‘From Greenville to Belfast, a 300-Mile Paddling Journey’

The Camden Public Library will present “Coastal Mountains Land Trust Series: From Greenville to Belfast, a 300-Mile Paddling Journey” online at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 9

In May Jackie Stratton, her partner Nate, and her dog Maple embarked on a 24-day canoe trip from Greenville to Belfast. Primarily following the route of Henry David Thoreau, Penobscot guide Joe Polis, and countless indigenous people, their 300-plus mile padding journey included eight miles of historic portage routes to connect the Kennebec Headwaters, West Branch, East Branch, and Main Stem of the Penobscot River. 

In this online presentation, Stratton will share about how they prepared, naturalist highlights, lessons learned, and what it’s like to be on “river time.” Register at to attend the program on Zoom. For digital publication, here is the registration link
