This crew can help your kids get outdoors and active
As an AmeriCorps grantee, Midcoast Conservancy is hosting an AmeriCorps Outdoor Adventure Program for 3 years, beginning September 2018. We bring 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 area programs that use and 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 and engaging in healthy activities. It works!
We have a fleet of fat tire bikes and stand-up paddleboards, as well as snowshoes and cross-country skis/boot/poles. Plus we have coaches to help you learn the skills needed to use the gear.
We are always looking for new places to bring our programming, so let us know if you’d like to do something in your community. Part of our mission is to train volunteers who can continue programs with our gear when AmeriCorps members are no longer on site; reach out if you’re interested in being part of our Outdoor Adventure team!
Maine AmeriCorps programs are administered by the Maine Commission for Community Service. For more information, visit http://www.maineservicecommission.gov/national-service
