Three annual programs are designed to introduce lifelong outdoor activities, healthy lifestyles, and leadership and resource stewardship skills to middle school students in the nearby communities to the Allagash.
The Allagash Wilderness Waterway Foundation has received financial support for the Youth on the Allagash program from Allagash Brewing Company, L.L. Bean, Wicked Joe Organic Coffee, Drummond Woodsum, Quimby Family Foundation, Maine Community Foundation, and the Perloff Family Foundation, as well as our many individual donors.
