Date & Location: Thursday, January 11, 6-7:30 pm, Bangor Public Library
Greg’s first visit to KW&W was more than fifteen years ago. He’s paddled the East Branch and the Seboies River. Since 2013, he’s mapped more than 500 hikes in Maine including numerous hikes in KW&W. He has also backpacked from one end of Baxter State Park to the other and has hiked more than 200 of the 215 miles of trails in the park. In his slideshow, he’ll be discussing hiking and paddling routes in and around Katahdin Woods and Waters. He’ll have suggestions for where to go for a family outing, where to get lost for a week, where to find wildlife, and where to see spectacular scenery. Greg’s passion for nature began when he was a young child and carried him through travels and adventures while he grew up. Twenty years ago Greg and his wife settled in Maine to continue this journey. They hike, camp, canoe, ski, and generally love their wild home. The author of five Falcon guides about hiking in Maine, Greg has also published more than fifty articles. He has an MFA in Creative Writing and teaches writing at Husson University and Eastern Maine Community College. He’ll bring copies of his five hiking guides for sale and discuss his latest book projects. Greg lives in Glenburn with his family and too many pets. For more information, contact Nancy Jacobson.
