Coming September 21, 2018. Saturday is the first official day of fall and very fittingly, also the start of the Great Maine Outdoor Weekend. It’s actually a weeklong event that focuses on connecting you with the natural world, to promote fun, physical activity, and good health. Various organizations and companies host a a slew of outdoor-oriented activities throughout the state such as kayak tours, yoga retreats, rock climbing instruction, book presentations, trail walks, fly fishing programs, bird watching, an outdoor film festival, and more. Many of the activities are free and provide a good introductory experience to a new sport. Check out their website to find an activity (or two or three or more!) near you!
