Overview of Community Events

We lead trips to places in Maine and beyond that anyone may enroll in. Additionally, we hold events that are meant to grow wilderness community, build social ties, and connect us to nature. Join one of our Community Trips, Beauty Walks and Paddles, or engaging group Events!

Community Trips

Our Community Trips are opportunities for individuals - who resonate with our mission, who are actively trying to make the world a more beautiful place, and who sometimes get worn out by their efforts - to get a dose of solitude and solidarity in a backcountry context. 

Events

From story telling events to camp outs that are free and open to the public, to gatherings in local breweries, Renewal in the Wilderness seeks to grow attachment to each other in community and nature.

We also post recent articles related to the benefits of nature, wilderness engagement, and other social environmental issues like environmental justice regularly on our Facebook page to keep our community engaged and talking on issues at the intersection of wilderness and social justice. 

Beauty Walks and Paddles

We guide Beauty Walks most weeks near our home base in Portland Maine and monthly summer paddles. These walks and paddles are for people trying to make the world a more beautiful place, and who sometimes get worn out by their efforts.

We meet at a variety of natural locations to walk, reflect, converse, and then return to our important work in the world. Join us as we gather together for a bit of solidarity and renewal.
