LIVERMORE FALLS, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Through a technical assistance grant the towns of Livermore Falls and Jay will get help expanding a network of trails along the Androscoggin River.
As the mills fade into the history books the towns are looking for a new future and they feel the answer is along the river.
Members of the National Park Service will spend the next year working with local leaders and volunteers on connecting existing trails and expanding the network.
They are also working with the Androscoggin Land Trust and plan to follow the lead of officials in Lewiston-Auburn who have spent the last 20 years working to reshape a riverside mill community.
All of the work is part of the Androscoggin Greenway which stretches from Durham to Jay.
To learn more or to volunteer you can contact the Androscoggin Land Trust: firstname.lastname@example.org.
