The Nature Conservancy, the Forest Society of Maine and Appalachian Mountain Club have signed a Purchase and Sale Agreement with Plum Creek Timber Company to permanently preserve more than 340,000 acres in Maine’s North Woods, near Moosehead Lake.
Every year the AMC retires old trail signs and puts up new signs. You can buy the old signs as a collectible.

The Source to Sea Trek-a-Thon is 4 days of paddling on the Androscoggin River, over 4 weekends. This is the first year that it is a “pledge event.” Participants are asked to raise money in support of 1) the event itself, and 2) the educational outreach programs.
