Learn about our Natural World with Explore Outdoors!
in 2017, we have partnered with the Great Pond Mountain Conservation
Trust to bring nature-based programming to the students and families of
Hancock county. Throughout the year, our education coordinator works
with school classes, after-school groups, libraries, and other local
organizations to teach youth about the importance of a healthy
environment and inspire children about the outdoors.
At this time, much of Explore Outdoors! programming has transitioned to
online learning. For more information on nature-based activities, visit
the Explore Outdoors website and Facebook page:
