Join Andy Bezon, Midcoast Conservancy’s director of community programs and Hidden Valley Nature Center, for a Snack & Chat Wednesday, May 23. “Getting Families Outside” will be held at Lake St. George Brewery in Liberty.

Participants are invited to drop by any time between 4 and 6 p.m. Bezon will bring Midcoast Conservancy’s trailer full of fat tire bikes; attendees can take one out for a spin and then then head inside for snacks and conversation at the brewery.

As part of its Outdoor Adventure & Learning community hub program, Midcoast Conservancy has assembled a collection of recreational equipment that it takes to various locations, or hubs, across Midcoast Maine in its series of Snack & Chat events.

In partnership with area schools or other organizations, Midcoast Conservancy offers kids and their families an opportunity to learn new skills and introduces them to local land and water resources where they can continue to build a relationship with the natural world.

The Snack & Chat provides a chance to learn more about the program, including the schedule of upcoming summer camps and clinics.

The series of Midcoast Conservancy Snack & Chat events also gives residents an opportunity to share their thoughts on issues around conservation, water quality protection and getting families outside, among other topics. Previous events have focused on local trail access and volunteer projects, and taking good nature photos and sharing them on social media.

For more information on any of these events, go to or call Midcoast Conservancy at 389-5150.
