Program Details:

The Rain or Shine Club offers a family-friendly and new-neighbor-friendly introduction to our favorite places with a focus on our active land stewardship projects. Learn how and why we work to protect land, and to protect and develop access to land. Each week we celebrate our successes with a variety of guided and self-led tours. Please join us Thursday mornings at 10am for a well-planned, no-cost adventure. Outings are typically an hour or two long. This five minute video describes the program and experience from one family’s perspective.  

We head out rain (or snow, or wind…) or shine! Please be mindful of the weather, and bugs, and dress accordingly. Bring appropriate gear, snacks, and thermos or water bottle. Well-behaved dogs are usually welcome with a leash and bags. Check this site regularly to stay updated. Any updates or changes to an event will be posted here by 7 am on the day of the outing.

Contact us at (207) 847-9399 with questions about gear, driving directions or anything else.
