Spending time in nature with others promotes a sense of connection and community. Scientific studies confirm what many people already know to be true in their bodies and minds. Midcoast Mainers live in a beautiful corner of the world, and the coast, forests and fields of the region provide ample opportunities for recreation, exploration, and appreciation.
