Orono Crown Lands – A place to Wander and Explore

We are very blessed to have the 633 acres Of Orono Crown Land so close to us. With the abandoned seed orchards, the trails, Wilmot Creek, and Orono Creek, lots of aquatic life like frogs, salmon, rainbow and brown trout, there are deer, fox and the other wild animals you may occasionally encounter. There are also lots of birds who you may not see but they are watching you from some branch above your head. But the sound of quiet is still resounding.

Orono UC was rocking Saturday night

Jim Hayward Willowridge Bluegrass entertained a full house at the Orono United Church on Saturday, February 1. Top Photo left to right: Gary Meyer, Jim Haywood, Sam Marshall and Dickson Raynard. Orono’s own Jake Lauzon (pictured right) joined the boys in the second set. The evening was a fundraiser with all proceeds from the evening going directly to the church. Everyone was tapping their feet and singing along. The congregation continues to meet at the church until a buyer is found. After that they will relocate to a new home in Orono.
