Winter Carnival 2021

As part of the Town of Lincoln’s Annual Winter Carnival, the Lincoln Land Conservation Trust/Rural Land Foundation (LLCT/RLF) invites the public to participate in two of its featured free events!
Beginning on Saturday, February 20th, and running thru Sunday, February 28th, the LLCT/RLF will host a Winter Animals Scavenger Hunt. Gear up and take a hike on Lincoln’s many walking trails in search of the various animal sculptures hidden on trail and created by local artists and students at Birches School. Take a selfie at each sculpture and submit your photos to be eligible to receive a $10 gift card from Twisted Tree Cafe or Something Special. (One per household while supplies last). More details below!


In addition, on Saturday, February 27th from 10:30 am to 1 pm, the LLCT/RLF and William Jackson Associates will host an Ice Sculpture demonstration, featuring Donald Chapelle, a local artist with 40 years of ice carving experience and founder of Brilliant Ice Sculptures. In addition to showcasing a number of pre-made ice sculptures, which he’ll have on-site, Chappelle will use chain saws, ice picks, and various carving elements to bring a moose to life out of a block of ice. The demonstration, which takes place at the Green at the Mall at Lincoln Station, located at 145 Lincoln Road is a great fun-for-the-whole-family experience. (Physical distancing protocols will be in place.) Twisted Tree Cafe will set up a pop-up shop with hot chocolate and cookies from 10:30-1pm on the Green by the ice sculpture demonstration. And, hint: the moose will be the last sculpture on your scavenger hunt!

Participation Instructions for the Winter Animals Scavenger Hunt-LIVE STARTING 2/20/2021

There’s a new trail app in town! LLCT is working with OuterSpatial to provide an easy-to-use, interactive trail map of Lincoln. With the app, you can easily locate yourself on the trails, explore new properties, post photos and share stories, and find out about trail updates and upcoming programs.

For the Winter Animals Scavenger Hunt, you’ll be using OuterSpatial to find the animals and upload your selfies. This scavenger hunt is free to participate in and open to all.
