Great Maine Outdoor Weekend: A Model for Community Engagement in the Outdoors - Lee Dassler, Western Foothills Land Trust

The Great Maine Outdoor Weekend is a series of events led by outdoor oriented organizations and companies to celebrate the how, where, and what of being active outside in Maine. The model is simple – we bring together a diverse network of event hosts for two weekends a year (February & September) and showcase all of the outdoor events, opportunities, facilities, and activities the great state of Maine has to offer. September 2016 will be our 10th Great Maine Outdoor Weekend, and over the 5 years we’ve been hosting these events we’ve seen consistent growth in the number of partners, events, and participants.
