Outing Club for Women

OWL’s Outing Club for Women welcomes women of any age to connect and learn with each other on regular outings throughout Downeast Maine.

Our outings include a mix of moderate-advanced hikes, environmental stewardship projects, and opportunities for outdoor knowledge and skill-building.  

We are also excited to partner with the Bike Bus program of the Washington County Council of Governments to offer a bicycle outing as part of The Women’s Ride, a series of bike rides across Maine, sponsored by the Bicycle Coalition of Maine.

 

Registration is required and COVID-19 guidelines will be followed.
