Conservation Fair at Union Fairgrounds - September 25

Every fall Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District brings together exhibitors and presenters with students from Knox and Lincoln county schools for a day of exploring conservation topics, environmental issues, live animals and farming, music, and fun. The Conservation Fair, now in its 13th year, is held annually on the last Thursday in September at the Union Fairgrounds (map), with even-numbered years reserved for early elementary students and odd-numbered years for middle school students. Please contact Rebecca Jacobs, Education/Outreach Coordinator, at or 207 596 2040.

Great Maine Outdoor Weekend Event, Hike the Aldermere Farm Trails!

Have you ever wondered where the trails are located at Aldermere Farm? On Friday, September 26 at 4pm, come join us for a hike on both trails - one to the ocean and one to an overlook of Lily Pond.

Please RSVP to 236-2739 or by Thursday Sept. 25. Once you RSVP, you will be notified of the meeting place to start the hike. Both trails are fairly easy hikes, but the ocean trail has some uphill sections and rougher terrain.

The Big E Agricultural Fair

If you are in the Springfield area than come and visit The Big E in West Springfield, Massachusetts. The fair runs from September 12-28 and offers great events and activities for the whole family. Aldermere Farm will have some of our Belted Galloways there competing against belties from other farms from across New England. Our group of 4H members, the Aldermere Achievers will be there demonstrating their showmanship skills and hope to continue their successful fair season.

Annual Beltie Holiday - December 6

The Beltie Holiday event takes place at Aldermere Farm annually as part of Christmas by the Sea in Camden and Rockport.

Aldermere staff will take the photo, but participants are encouraged to bring their own camera for more photos. There will be a couple of Belted Galloway calves available to pet and lots of craft activities. This event will be held from 9:00am - Noon.
