This crew can help your kids get outdoors and active

Miranda, Emma & Jess: Our AmeriCorps Outdoor Adventure team!

As a new AmeriCorps grantee, Midcoast Conservancy is hosting an AmeriCorps Outdoor Adventure Program for the next 3 years beginning September of 2018. We are bringing outdoor gear and trained AmeriCorps members to your schools and community! Contact the AmeriCorps team for how the program works and how you can get involved.

Using Hidden Valley Nature Center as the model, we have created community hubs to improve existing trails and get more families outdoors having fun. We believe by investing in people, places and gear we can remove the barriers that keep our communities from connecting to the natural world. It works!

We have a fleet of fat tire bikes and stand-up paddleboards, and every fall we lease high-quality XC skis to youth with growing feet. Plus we have coaches to help you learn the skills needed to use the gear.

Ski lease dates now on the Programs & Events page!

Maine AmeriCorps programs are administered by the Maine Commission for Community Service. For more information, visit
