Woodlawn’s Spring Cleanup Day is Canceled and Opening Day is Postponed

Ellsworth: In light of Governor Mills’ Stay Healthy at Home mandate, Woodlawn Museum, Gardens & Park has canceled their Spring Cleanup Day, previously scheduled for April 18 and has also postponed the opening day of the Black House.  

Interim Executive Director, Phyllis Young said, “While the actual date for opening the museum is yet to be determined the house and grounds are being prepared for the summer season. We are fortunate to have a highly skilled husband and wife team volunteering their time for spring cleaning and maintenance projects in the Black House. Safe practices for use of the trails, croquet court and community garden are being developed and put in place. When we get the green light to open, Woodlawn will be ready to go.”

Additionally, the Spring Cleanup Day, scheduled for Saturday, April 18 has been canceled. Once the stay at home restrictions are lifted, Woodlawn will be seeking volunteers interested in helping with weeding the gardens and other outside chores. Members of the public interested in serving on the Woodlawn Grounds Committee may call 207-667-8671 to be added to the contact list for upcoming workdays and projects.

The Woodlawn trails remain open daily to the public, sunrise to sunset. Trail users are expected to use safe social distancing protocol while recreating. Woodlawn is a smoke-free property. Dogs on leash are welcome, and owners are asked to please tidy up after their pets.
