Education/History/Arts

Education_artFor centuries, the Maine Woods have inspired educators, writers, artists, and historians to convey the meaning of our natural world.  Henry David Thoreau “…introduced us to the idea that wildness is not something to be tamed but instead something to be sought and treasured, that it is necessary to the human spirit.”*  Libraries, historical societies, schools and colleges, museums, and the Wabanaki people are offering events and activities to Celebrate the Maine Woods!
