Sept. 19 @ 3:30 pm. researching lots that do not have buildings on them or lots of over ten acres with a building. Anyone available to speed this process of checking through the tax maps is urged to join him.
David Legere suggested that members of LCC do some work on the trail instead of just sponsoring another time to walk the Simon's Trail. Saturday, Nov. 3rd was tentatively set as the date for this work bee.
David Hodgkins, one of the owners of the land included in our Aug. 8th Track Trail Hike whom Carol Korty had contacted for permission to go over his land, contacted Carol to see how that hike had gone.
Carol shared an informational sheet from Iris Simon re: a Saturday, September 29-3 pm nature walk at Frenchman bay Conservancy Indian Point Preserve in Ellsworth.
Bob Pulver attended a meeting on Sept. 12 th of the Friends of Frenchman Bay.
Dr. Jane Disney of the Friends of Frenchman Bay is coming to talk to the Lamoine Selectmen on Oct. 4th . Bob encouraged as many commissioners who could attend to do so. Dr. Disney has been very supportive of LCC projects such as the eel grass.
Nancy Pochan was asked by an Ellsworth person about what we do re: ground water. She gave her the name of John Peckenham to contact for more specifics.
Concerns were raised re: the status of the water level loggers which are placed in gravel pits to monitor the level of the water in the aquifers under them. Some of the loggers have been removed. The group decided that we needed a clearer statement from John Peckenham re: the specific value/s of having the water level loggers on site and monitored.
Motions and Outcomes: The minutes of the July 11th meeting and the e-mail account of the LCC sponsored hike on the Track Trail were read aloud and approved.
