Retired Professor to Trace Roots of Appalachian Trail

An author and retired University of Maine forestry professor will talk about the roots of the Appalachian Trail in the state at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 24 at the Buchanan Alumni House on campus.

David Field, a member of the Maine Appalachian Trail Club (MATC), will share stories and insights, as well as scenic and historical photographs, during the free presentation titled “Finding the Trail — How the Appalachian Trail Came to Maine.”

The MATC is sponsoring the 45-minute presentation in the McIntire Maine Event Room. Doors open at 6 p.m. Since 1935, the MATC has managed the 267 miles of trail in the state.

Since 1956, Field has maintained the same six miles of the trail near Saddleback Mountain. After his presentation, the member of the Appalachian Trail Hall of Fame will sign copies of his book, “Along Maine’s Appalachian Trail.”
