A Patterson Hill Pilsner fundraiser for the Greater Lovell Land Trust is scheduled for 4-8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 22 at Saco River Brewing, 10 Jockey Cap Lane in Fryeburg.

Participants can try a new beer and support the trust’s Kezar River South Project.

The trust has an  opportunity to protect an additional 1,350-plus acres along the Kezar River Corridor in both Lovell and Sweden that would abut the Kezar Corridor Lands to the south.

Completing this project would create an over 2,600 acre preserve owned and managed by the trust, and result in an over 3,200 acre contiguous block of conserved lands, according to a news release from Lizzy Echard, education and community engagement coordinator with the trust.

Known as the Kezar River South project, the property features a large suite of conservation values and public benefits, including:
• Four and a half miles of frontage on both sides of the Kezar River that will be protected;
• Protection of four small ponds with beaver activity, at least 105 acres of scrub-shrub wetland along the river corridor, and eight acres of emergent wetlands; and
• Serving as traditional hunting grounds with the Kezar River being renowned by local anglers for its brook trout fishery. The KRS property also contains important stretches of ATV and snowmobile trails, which run over old woods roads.

For more information, call Echard at 207-925- 1056.
