Next Wave Circle: Access for Everyone
at the new Adaptive Outdoor Education Center in Brunswick
Access to the outdoors supports active, healthy, and happy communities. At Maine Coast Heritage Trust, we’re on a mission to make the coast accessible to people of all abilities.
Join your fellow members of the Next Wave Circle at the beautiful new Adaptive Outdoor Education Center for a special look at the work going on at MCHT’s Woodward Point Preserve and throughout Maine, to expand outdoor opportunities for people of all abilities.

You might know about AOEC from the amazing outdoor programming they’ve been doing from their Carrabassett Valley base since 2015. Come see the brand new Adaptive Outdoor Education Center in Brunswick which includes programming space; the Horizons Center, a flexible performance/event space; a firepit and outdoor amphitheater, and, coming soon, the Audubon sanctioned sensory gardens, kitchen garden, and 12-acre “Enchanted Forest” accessible trail system.
Next Wave Circle
We’ve created a series of in-depth experiences for members of the Next Wave Circle (donors under 50 making an annual gift of $500 or more) to bring you closer to the work you make possible. Come learn about important topics in conservation and give us your feedback. We want to hear from you!
As one of our most passionate supporters, you’re also one of MCHT’s best ambassadors. Have a friend who wants to learn more about MCHT and the Next Wave? You’re welcome to bring them too!
