Community Services

Through our local Community Services (link to community services website) office, CELT offers a variety of nature walks open to the community. These programs include:

  • Mushroom walks (spring)
  • Wildflower identification walks (spring)
  • After-school hikes for third and fourth graders (fall and spring)
  • Goodnight, Cape Elizabeth activities for children (fall, winter and spring)
  • Winter animal tracking
  • Twice annual cross-town walks (fall and spring)

Retirement Communities

For the residents of The Landing at Cape Elizabeth and Piper Shores, we provide presentations on local environmental topics throughout the seasons. Previous topics have included winter animal tracking, tidepool inhabitants, nocturnal animals and tree identification. Residents can also participate in outings to apply the knowledge they learned from the presentations.

Preschool Trips

We provide preschool guided trail walks for a small fee as an introduction to the wildlife habitat of the natural world.

Scout Programs

We can assist local Scout troops in environmental and wildlife-related programs.

Interpretive Signs

Robinson Woods is home to three interpretive signs thanks to funds provided by the Ed Meadows Conservation Fund. The first sign describes the history of Robinson Woods Preserve and can be found on the Outer Loop Trail just past the welcome kiosk. A second sign detailing a sensitive vernal pool habitat can be found on the Wildflower Trail. The third sign, highlighting inhabitants of a pond, stands along the Pond Trail.
