Friends of Baxter State Park
Friends of Baxter State Park was awarded a grant to fund the second year of the Maine Youth Wilderness Leadership Program in Baxter State Park. This program is a one-week pilot project for ten high school sophomores and juniors to learn the meaning and value of wilderness through a back country camping experience at Baxter State Park. Facilitated by experienced trip leaders and resource specialists, students will deepen their understanding of and appreciation for wilderness preservation and make a lifelong connection to the natural world.
