September Get Out! Nature Walk - Chestnut Trees & Fungi

  • Berkovich Property 66 Winn Rd Cumberland, ME, 04021 United States (map)

Welcome fall at the Berkovich property to learn about Chestnut Trees and Fungi.

We are grateful to have an opportunity to explore this property and learn about the special species that live there. In December 2001, the Berkovich family donated a conservation easement on 22 acres of undeveloped land adjacent to their house, reserving the right to construct one single family residence on the back portion of the property. This forested parcel consists primarily of mixed hardwoods and softwoods and borders a large field area to the north. The terrain is notably uneven, with several steeply sided hills that are remnants of past courses of Mill Brook which winds its way through the property from the Rines Forest. The parcel is subject to a forest management plan, with selective cutting occurring at intervals over the years. In January 2018, the family granted an easement on 11 additional acres, bringing the total conserved area to 33 acres.
