We all know this past year has been like NO OTHER! Our programs drastically changed as we clambered to understand what was safe for staff and attendees. Then, work shifted to develop online content for classrooms, teachers and public education. We are working to offer safe and local opportunities to connect with the land, but please know that the trails at the Holt Pond Preserve, the Highland Research Forest and the Pinehaven Trail at the Maine Lake Science Center remain open and accessible to you! Even if we cannot be together we hope you can explore with your families or on your own! (Find trail maps and more info here.) For updates on the latest, please follow us on Facebook @lakesenvironmental, and we hope to see you soon!
In a normal year, Lakes Environmental Association offers outreach education programs throughout the seasons in the Natural Resources of the Lakes Region Series. The goal of our education series is to encourage a connection to place through explorations of the natural world. We believe that with a strong connection to place, an interest in environmental stewardship naturally follows.
All events are free to LEA members, except where special program costs apply. To become a member, click here. We encourage you to let us know you will attend by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Programs are subject to change due to weather and minimum participation.
Guided walks and natural history presentations are part of the Natural Resources of the Lakes Region. This series is made possible in part through the support of Hu and Ray Caplan and their family, and in part by our members. The Caplans recognize the vital importance of education in all aspects of LEA’s work in protecting the Lake Region’s most important resource and asset: its bodies of water and watersheds. If you are interested in contributing to the education program, please contact us!
You can always find out about events on our Facebook page and through our homepage. Do you have some ideas of what you’d like to see? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to talk about some possibilities!
