March 5, 2005; 11-2. Blind and with cabin fever? Let us help you get out and about. Visit Fields Pond Nature Center at 216 Fields Pond Road Holden, Maine for a ‘solitude walk’. We will direct you to a half-mile nature trail which you can walk alone. For security, you’ll have a radio linked to a volunteer possibly also visually impaired in the headquarters building. Enjoy being truly alone with the sounds, smells, and touches of awakening nature. Come anytime during those hours; we’ll be there. And for the wimps, we’ll have a guided walk at 2 where we’ll help you to examine those non-visual sensations of the natural world. Sponsored for visually impaired participants by NHEST and Maine Audubon. For information, contact Maine Audubon To register, call Fields Pond Nature at (207)989-2591 or write:
