In June, Great Pond Mountain Trust officials requested KidsPeace kids, as part of their regular Forestry program, to construct a wheelchair bypass around the South Gate on the Bucksport-Ellsworth Road.


The kids worked hard. Shawn McCue came along as a worker and test pilot. The pictures here illustrate Shawn’s contribution to the project. He judged the trail a little soft for traction, but good nonetheless. As the sign says, Do Not Block (Shawn’s) Gate.


In this unprecedented time, we hope you find solace and renewal in the Wildlands, our 4500-acre preserve in Orland.
