Families will read a book together, play on the trails and do a winter scavenger hunt. Don’t forget to wear blaze orange, it’s expanded hunting season in December.

The Southern Midcoast Forest Playgroup is a free, parent-facilitated program that aims to provide a space for like aged-children to explore, learn, and interact outside. Their branch meets every Thursday at 930am at different locations in the Southern Midcoast region.  Weekly adventures are typically posted the Sunday or Monday before the adventure on their Facebook page.
