What

Bar Harbor Movie Series - "Forever Wild"

Description

 

Do you know how it feels to sleep outside under a pitch-black sky glittering with stars? Have you walked in silent reflection in a high alpine meadow in a gentle breeze?

To experience wilderness is to know one of this country's greatest treasures. Forever Wild captures the glory of undeveloped, wild places through stunning images and the passionate tales of America’s modern wilderness heroes – volunteers from New Hampshire to California who work to preserve a legacy of wilderness for all of us to enjoy, forever.

Forever Wild: Celebrating America’s Wilderness tells the tales of citizens who have decided what wilderness means to them. They have dedicated time and energy to helping protect the lands they love as wilderness. Robert Redford, himself a strong supporter of wilderness, hosts the film. Mr. Redford’s narration, together with original music and the moving prose of Terry Tempest Williams, read by the author, guide the viewer through an examination of America’s commitment to wilderness preservation, and the values we hold dear in protecting these wild lands.

Forever Wild educates audiences about the ever-present pressures to develop the last remnants of wild land left in America and offers viewers an opportunity to reflect on the importance of protecting wilderness so that our children may experience the same wild places.

What

Sierra Club Outing, Sabattus Mountain, Lovell

Description

 

Join us for an Outing at Sabattus Mountain Trail, a 1.4 mile loop trail which is good for all skill levels. Two Land for Maine’s Future Grants enabled the state to purchase this 177 acre parcel.  

The trail traverses through a mixed growth forest with some moderate limbs over a few sections of exposed roots and ledge. At the summit Kezar Lake can be viewed along with the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Several outlooks along offers good sites for picnicking while watching hawks glide in the thermals.
