The photos with the most "likes" win some cool prizes! Celebrate the season enjoying outdoor fun in Maine. Contest runs through the end of February Vacation Week.
The Story Walk™ program combines the benefits of physical activity, time outdoors in nature, literacy and family time by taking children’s books and posting them, in pieces, along a recreational path or hiking trail.
