One woman’s river awareness journey down the Androscoggin~~~

I am a Registered Maine Guide, retreat leader  and founder of Nurture Through Nature Retreat Center,  in Denmark, Maine, interested in bringing a voice to the Androscoggin River, its history, heritage and evolution in our culture. My intention is increase awareness about water quality and raise money for an environmental non-profit organization that includes in its mission and vision water and natural resource protection. I grew up on this river and have a deep appreciation for it. I am grateful to be in collaboration with MaineRIvers.Org whose mission is to protect, restore and enhance the ecological health of Maine’s river systems.

I will be paddling its length and sharing what is discovered along the way.

Please join me for the culminating celebration, where this majestic river meets the sea,  at the Sea Dog Brewing Company, 1 Bowdoin Mill Island #100, Topsham, ME on June 14, 4-6pm. Special thanks to Sea Dog Brewing for donating the space for this event.
