DLLT was thrilled to welcome “From Away Downeast” this past Saturday.  They played an 80 minute set of traditional “lumberjack songs,” straight from New England logging camps.  The crowd sang along on several choruses and enjoyed numerous songs that had roots in Washington County.  DLLT would like to thank “From Away Downeast” for their performance and their hard work preserving traditional folk songs of the Downeast Lakes region. In talking with some in attendance at this show it was another outstanding event sponsored by the Downeast Lakes Land Trust.

On Sunday, March 20th at 12 pm, join the Downeast Lakes Land Trust as we celebrate Sugar Maples with a traditional “backyard boil-down” in Grand Lake Stream.  Learn all about the transformation from sap to syrup and the cultural significance of this local pastime.  As the syrup finishes off outside, we will head inside the Grand Lake Stream School Building for a Pancake Brunch, putting our finished product to good use!  For more information, please contact the Downeast Lakes Land Trust at (207) 796 -2100 or email
