Lady Slipper Orchids at Day Ridges Preserve

Join FBC for a guided hike on Saturday, June 1 at Day Ridges Preserve!

Join FBC on a guided hike at Day Ridges Preserve! Located on Route 1 in Gouldsboro, the Day Ridges Preserve offers two miles of hiking trails. Extensive bog bridging allows hikers to explore a cedar swamp and wind around impressive boulders, also known as glacial erratics. This hike will be focused on scouting out spring ephemerals, namely, the beautiful Lady Slipper orchids that bloom in the area each spring. 

There will be two options for hiking. The first option is a 1.75 mile loop from the trailhead parking lot. The second option is an additional 2.5 mile out-and-back trail leading to the canoe launch on Lower West bay Pond for those who are interested and/or want to get in a hike with more elevation.

To keep our staff, volunteers, and other program participants safe, please stay home if you have any symptoms consistent with cold. Thank you!

This hike is limited to 12 registrants, so please sign up early! All participants must register individually.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Ellie Ezekiel, Director of Communications & Community Engagement, at ellie@frenchmanbay.org.
