UNITY — Field season started early at Sebasticook Regional Land Trust this year, as 18 Unity College students volunteered services at two of the trust’s properties in Unity.

The students participated in Alternative Spring Break and stayed behind to served the communities in March.

At Sebasticook Regional Land Trust, students made repairs and improvements to bridges at the Connor Mill trail, a three-mile loop along Sandy Stream. Other students cleared trail and removed debris from Kanokolus Bog Preserve.

A 2011 gift from the Packard family of Unity to provide the community with educational and recreational opportunities, Kanokolus Bog Preserve has extensive road frontage on Route 9. The Alternative Spring Break crew removed TV sets, tires, a toilet, household trash and other debris during the morning cleanup.

Sebasticook Regional Land Trust, based in Unity, works with landowners in the Sebasticook River region to conserve the lands they love and the resources the community relies upon. Established in 2004 as Friends of Unity Wetlands, the trust has permanently conserved more than 2,800 acres of productive farmland, working forests and wildlife habitat.
