In 2014, portland trails continued our work on building and maintaining trails, using community volunteers to do much of the work. We choose to engage local volunteers in order to foster a sense of place and ownership of local natural areas and public places. We focused on extending the stroudwater trail to smiling hill farm in westbrook. We purchased 14 acres of land on the presumpscot estuary in falmouth and we facilitated a open spaces visioning process that took place in all of portland's neighborhoods. Our school ground greening coalition worked with teachers , parents, students and other school personnel to create schoolyards that support the creative play and environmental learning of students and community members of all ages.
