Get out on the coast with MCHT’s Next Wave
Thanks for being a member of the Next Wave, the group of Maine Coast Heritage Trust donors under 50 on a mission to keep the coast Maine.
Maine Coast Heritage Trust has a ton of fun ways to connect to the coast for you and your fellow Next Wavers. Find the experience that inspires you, grab a friend or grab the kids, and head out.
We can’t wait to see you out on the coast for community gatherings, group hikes, nature walks, and more.
