Youth on the Allagash

Connecting youth to nature improves educational outcomes as well as physical and mental well-being.  The AWWF Youth on the Allagash initiative includes a Canoeing & Water Safety Day Camp, Multi-Day Allagash Wilderness Adventure Trips, and a Classroom to River program for outdoor STEAM learning in middle-high schools near the Allagash.  For more information visit our YOTA page.

Natural Resource Inventory, Analysis, and Long-term Monitoring

Protecting nature requires science-based decision-making, especially in the face of climate change.  The AWWF Natural Resources Inventy, Ecological Assessment and Long-Term Monintoring (NRIM) initiative began in 2020.  The initial report, A River in Space and Time, was published in January 2024 and will be available to the public later this year.  A natural history pocket guide and monitoring protocol will follow.

Wabanaki Culture and History

Honoring the Wabanaki Ancestral Homeland and People  encourages Wabanaki access to the Allagash and is exploring ways for all visitors to learn about Wabanaki ancestral and contemporary homelands, history, and culture.  In 2024, the AWWF will sponsor one multi-day trip for Mi’kmaq and Maliseet youth leaders interested in leading tribal youth wilderness trips. AWWF is also sponsoring a second trip for the Wabanaki Youth and Science (WaYS) Ancestral Lands Trail Crew.
