Stop by Cousins River Fields & Marsh to take a guided tour of the salt marsh. Enjoy snacks, drinks, a farmers’ market, corn hole and a fire!

The Fun:


Join Maine Coast Heritage Trust, Freeport Conservation Trust, Royal River Conservation Trust, and Portland’s Liquid Riot Bottling Company to see firsthand how we can make the important Cousins River salt marshes more resilient to climate change right here in Yarmouth—all while enjoying an afternoon of tasty local snacks, craft vendors from the Yarmouth Farmer’s Market, drinks provided by Liquid Riot, and a bonfire (marshmallows included!).


The Partners:


Maine Coast Heritage Trust, Royal River Conservation Trust, and Freeport Conservation Trust, are working together to develop this former farm into a community resource and to protect the river’s 220-acre marsh system. Portland’s craft distillery, Liquid Riot, is joining us to support a cause they strongly believe in.


The Details:


Drop in between 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm. We’ll be leading guided tours of the salt marsh throughout the afternoon and answering your questions about the vulnerable but critical ecosystems that flourish here.


This event is free and open to all ages.


Drinks, food, and local craft items will be available for purchase. (Credit cards accepted on-site.)


Rain date: Sunday, November 13, 1 pm – 4 pm.
