Brewer Land Trust Day events announced

BREWER—The Brewer Land Trust is proud to announce the first Brewer Land Trust Day will be held Sunday September 10 on the beautiful Brewer Riverwalk.

Community members and local businesses will come together to bring awareness to outdoor activities and the nonprofit Brewer Land Trust. The event will run from 12- 3:30 pm.

Brewer Land Trust President, Linda Johns, said the board of advisors are anticipating a great event for all outdoor enthusiasts. “The amount of support from community businesses has been remarkable. Brewer and the surrounding towns have so much to offer those that enjoy nature and the great outdoors.”

The event will feature live music by Not by Works and several local business booths including Tiller & Rye, Winterport Boot Shop and Bangor YMCA. The Brewer Outdoor Education Group will also demonstrate canoeing skills and easy launching from the Brewer shore of the Penobscot River.

The event will also offer plenty of activities geared towards children, including face painting, bubbles, chalk, jump rope and more! The Penobscot River Community Coalition and the Bangor Area storm water Group will host educational environmental booths.

Mason’s Brewing Company is sponsoring a closing celebration where all new members of the land trust ($25 membership fee) will be entered into prize drawings. Some of the prizes include a 106 Dirigo Kayak donated by Old Town Canoe, a Scot Bike donated by Bangor Ski and Sports Shop, and Merrell shoes donated by Winterport Boot Shop. These items are on display at BLT partner, Masons Brewing Company.

Chris Morley, owner of Mason’s Brewing Company stated that conservation of public natural resources is important to the community and he is happy to support the work of the Brewer Land Trust.

To kick off this first Brewer Land Trust Day, Mason’s Brewing Company has donated four $25 gift cards and will donate 10% of sales from 3:30 to closing on the day of the event.
