Education & Outreach

Coastal Rivers provides nature education and skills programs for youth and adults.

Connecting people and place is central to our mission. We are convinced that engaging youth and adults alike with the natural world in this exceptional region builds a stronger community of caring stewards dedicated to the integrity of the lands and waters of the Damariscotta-Pemaquid region.


Programs like Midcoast Stewards, Oyster Gardening, the Beachcombers’ Rest Nature Center, Camp Mummichog, Ponders gatherings, the LakeSmart program, Archaeology Field School, Mushroom Workshops, Edible Seaweed Courses, Wabanaki Living Skills and Culture, Health of the Damariscotta River, and many more benefit individuals, families, school-aged children, and municipal officials.
