Climate Change & Coasts: The MAINE Reason to Act Broadwalk
Blueberry Cove Summer Camp, St. George, Maine
Marine ecosystems, ocean warming and sea level rise, community resilience, and climate change. Join us at Blueberry Cove, a twenty-five-acre camp that has it all. We’ll be right on the coast, overlooking Tenants Harbor, nestled in mature spruce forest and meadows. The camp offers a beautiful swimming beach, tide flats, and plenty of opportunities for hiking, canoeing, and more!
A Salty Situation
On this unique event, you’ll explore this distinctive region and discover how the ocean, marine life, and coastal systems—such as estuaries, rivers, and salt marshes— are being impacted by a changing climate. We’ll partner with the Maine Department of Environmental Protection to learn the history and current state of the wild inhabitants of the Weskeag Salt Marsh, and support Maine Broadband members involved with the Weskeag River Water Monitoring Project.
Glamping on the Shore
Options for lodging include limited cabin reservations for up to 34 (shared cabins or single cabins) and tent camping for up to 50. There’s potable water, a bathhouse with warm showers, and flushing toilets. We have the luxury of an inside space (in case of weather) for our evening festivities, where we’ll enjoy presentations from experts in ocean ecology and climate change. All meals are included!
