We are lucky to live in a place so rich with outdoor resources like waterfalls and rivers, bike trails and hiking paths, kayaking, and islands to explore. Information on those opportunities for recreation and physical activity are spread throughout the internet, though, and sometimes it can be difficult to find what you’re looking for. That’s why over the past few months, Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust has been working on a project to provide you with a wellness resource that will provide you with inspiration and options all through the year. The Forecaster’s Alex Lear wrote a story on this new resource…
For those wondering what all-ages activities are available in the area to boost or maintain physical health, the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust has the answers.
The trust launched its “wellness resource” at btlt.org/wellness-map last month. With the website a work in progress, “we are looking for information from the community to make sure that we aren’t missing anything,” Jamie Pacheco, BTLT’s wellness coordinator, said Dec. 12.
“We want feedback; we want to know what people need,” Pacheco said.
The resource is meant as a one-stop shop for those looking for outdoor, indoor or child-friendly activities around greater Brunswick. Whereas information on such opportunities has been spread over various websites, or not published online, the new guide will serve as a compilation of available opportunities.
“The Land Trust’s mission is to conserve land but also to connect people to nature by providing recreational opportunities,” BTLT said in a recent press release. “As such, the organization feels a responsibility to improve the overall wellness of our community through education and access.”
