At 5,267 feet tall Katahdin stands as Maine's highest mountain. Found at the base of this great mountain, is Chimney Pond, a pristine glacial tarn and jewel to Baxter State Park. There will be many topics discussed on this trip, including Katahdin's history, folklore, and glacial past, but the primary study will be the hardy plants residing on the tablelands.
In addition to discussing the various plant species, we will also use iNaturalist to collect valuable phenology data for Baxter State Park's Natural Resource Department. The flora phenology observations we submit will assist the Park's conservation research efforts. We hope you join us for a close look at the unique ecosystem that resides on and surrounding Katahdin's tablelands!
This is a very physically demanding educational trip. We will be staying in 3-sided lean-tos once arriving at Chimney Pond. Please contact Tori prior to booking to go over logistics. Scroll down to see our recommended gear list!
