Midcoast Conservancy’s Outdoor Adventure & Learning Hubs aim to increase access to outdoor sport and outdoor educational opportunities for children and families in the Midcoast region. Using Hidden Valley Nature Center as the model, we have created community hubs to improve existing trails, provide equipment, and create professional development opportunities for community leaders. Through investing in people, place and gear we hope to remove some of the barriers that keep our communities from connecting with, and in, the natural world. 

Outdoor Adventure & Learning Hubs events are open for registration! Go to the Programs & Events page to see what’s coming up in Wiscasset, Jefferson, Whitefield, Thorndike and Liberty.

We are looking for student interns with a deep interest in outdoor adventure and learning.  Interns will work closely with staff and community leaders to support many aspects of the program including programming, gear maintenance and recovery. Contact Andy Bezon if you are interested.

Our goal is to ensure that access to outdoor adventure and learning opportunities is within a 15-minute reach of every child and family who lives in the Midcoast.

The Outdoor Adventure & Learning Program was launched with generous grant support from the Elmina B. Sewall Foundation, Quimby Family Foundation, and Renys Charitable Trust Foundation. Their support has enabled Midcoast Conservancy to purchase the equipment needed to provide these opportunities and work to determine the needs of various communities.
