FALMOUTH — Conservation land will be posted with bright yellow boundary signs to identify them for residents’ use and to delineate their boundaries to prevent visitors from trespassing on neighboring properties.
All town-owned conservation land is open to the public for recreational use that may include hiking, snowshoeing and hunting. No motorized vehicles, other than snowmobiles on marked trails, are allowed and dogs must be leashed from April 1 to Oct. 1 to protect wildlife.
There are already trails on some of the conservation property, such as Wilshore Forest, Falmouth Nature Preserve and River Point. Within the next few years, the Falmouth Conservation Corps will be constructing new trails on most of the additional properties. Anyone interested in volunteering to help with that project may call 878-8933 or send an e-mail to openspace@maine.rr.com.
