Calendar | Active things to do in Maine

++ Get out (but, like, not too far). We all love and appreciate the positive effects of the Maine outdoors. Hopefully we’ll be back to all kinds of adventuring soon. But for now, press pause. The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry has some great advice: stay close to home, steer clear of busy locations, keep your distance (and stick to walking/hiking with folks from your household). ++

We will explore the emerald green waters and remote wild islands. The smell of the ocean, sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks, seals barking, and birds communicating all contribute to a wild and remote experience.
