The Fumee Lake Commission invites the public to participate in their annual Wings & Wildflowers Walks. Look for 2017's dates to appear in the spring. Whether you're a nature enthusiast, or someone who simply likes to get some fresh air in a beautiful atmosphere, those of all ages and abilities are more than welcome to walk with us. A variety of birds live, breed, or migrate through the Fumee Lake Natural Area. Warblers, Loons, and Bald Eagles are just a few species you may encounter there. Fumee also features many kinds of wildflower, including several native orchids. We meet at the east parking lot, off Upper Pine Creek Road (off US 2 between Quinnesec and Norway). Dress for the weather, and wear comfortable shoes. Bring a bird or wildflower guide and a camera. The walks are at a slow pace, on an easy terrain; we cover just over one mile, for between two and three hours. There is no charge to participate, and no County park sticker is required.
