Education & Outreach

DRA provides nature education and skills programs for youth and adults.

Connecting people and place is central to our mission. We are convinced that engaging youth and adults alike with the natural world in this exceptional region builds a stronger community of caring stewards dedicated to the integrity of the Damariscotta River.


Programs like Midcoast Stewards, Oyster Gardening, Camp Mummichog, Archaeology Field School, Mushroom Workshops, Edible Seaweed Courses, Wabanaki Living Skills and Culture, Health of the Damariscotta River, and many more benefit individuals, families, school-aged children, and municipal officials. Check out our calendar for upcoming events and programs.
