Maine Tree Club plans outings across state

PORTLAND – Maine residents and visitors can learn more about one of the state’s greatest resources by joining the Maine Tree Club, an educational project for participants of all ages, offered by University of Maine Cooperative Extension, the Maine Forest Service, and the Pine Tree State Arboretum.

The Maine Tree Club is planning at least three outings around the state in 2009 to get people into the woods for learning and enjoyment. The outings, guided by experts, are planned for the mountains and coastal regions as well as other parts of Maine.

The annual registration fee for the Maine Tree Club is $20 a person, $30 a couple, $35 a family, and $65 for a group of up to 15. A limited number of Maine Tree Club scholarships are available for those in need. There is no deadline for registration.
