HALLOWELL — During the first two week of August, the Maine Conservation Corp will work to help maintain the trails in the Vaughan Woods.

The MCC will repair and replace bog bridges and wooden stairs on the lower stream trail, as well as replace water bars on the main Corniche trail.

“The MCC crew is critical to our trail maintenance and stewardship of the Vaughan Woods,” Ellen Gibson, director of the Vaughan Woods & Historic Homestead, said in a news release from the homestead.

The Vaughan Woods & Historic Homestead estimates more than 25,000 visitors to the woods each year.

This project with MCC was funded in part by the the Maine Outdoor Heritage Fund. Proceeds from the sale of a dedicated instant lottery ticket MAINE-AH MONEY, help provide grants to support wildlife and conservation in Maine.
