Registration is not required for this activity. However, you may wish to contact the leader(s) if you have any questions.


Join us for an exciting presentation on Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument. We will entice you to visit KWWMN with a video. In September of 2017, a team of four Maine-born photographers and filmmakers set off into Katahdin Woods & Waters to document the land in hopes of encouraging more public use. Their film, Monumental , documents a five day, 64-mile-long human powered circumnavigation of the park by canoe, bike, and foot. Learn about the many things to see and do in the monument from those who are involved in the activities going on up there. We'll entice you with photos and details on how you can enjoy what the monument has to offer and how you can get involved in shaping this gem. We'll also hear from the newly established Friends of Katahdin Woods and Waters, a membership organization working to raise funds and support for the Monument. They'll share early accomplishments and plans moving forward, including how you can raise your voice during the management planning process for the Monument's future.  Potluck dinner will start at 6pm (please bring a dish to share, help us be green and bring your own cup, plates and silverware). Presentation at 7pm. Free and open to the public.
