The 10th annual opening of the Orono Bog Boardwalk will take place at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, May 1, with a special ceremony to mark the anniversary of one of the region’s most popular natural areas. Located in the Rolland F. Perry (Bangor) City Forest, the boardwalk wends its way through forested wetland and out onto a broad, open peat bog. The wheelchair-accessible boardwalk is free to visit and open from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. seven days a week during spring and summer. Managed jointly by the Orono Land Trust, the city of Bangor and the University of Maine, boardwalk operation and maintenance are funded entirely through donations and sales of merchandise. Information about the boardwalk and its nature programs is available on the website www.oronobogwalk.org, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 581-1697.
