Each spring Friends of Baxter State Park holds a gathering to celebrate accomplishments, enjoy presentations, eat scrumptious food, meet new Friends, find out the latest developments, and share our experiences in the Park with each other.
Join us for 2015 Annual Meeting will be held on Saturday, April 11th at Viles Arboretum, 156 Hospital St, Augusta. Coffee and muffins will be served at 8:30 am and the meeting starts at 9 am. The meeting will include many interesting guest speakers, updates from the Park, and a sneak preview of a new book! (More details about presentations will be posted here soon.) The meeting will be followed by lunch and an optional group hike in the area.
