ANNUAL MEETING

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.

The 2015 Annual Meeting was held on Saturday, April 11th at Viles Arboretum, 156 Hospital St, Augusta.  Coffee and muffins were served at 8:30 am and the meeting started at 9 am. The presentations included Park Director Jensen Bissell on the State of the Park; Botanist/author Glen Mittelhauser with a sneak preview of the Plants of Baxter State Park Guidebook & Database; Executive Director Aaron Megquier on the recent activities of Friends of Baxter State Park and a preview of the 2016 Calendar photos. Artwork by BSP visiting artist, Nora West was also featured. The meeting was followed by a hearty lunch of chili, salads, sandwiches, and scrumptious desserts. Thank you to all who contributed to this successful event!

Here are some highlights from the 2014 Annual Meeting.
