Forest Playgroup at Widgeon Cove Trail

Join us at Widgeon Cove in Harpswell for a morning of exploration in the forest. The short loop trail winds through woodlands, across ravines and along the shoreline where there are dramatic views of the cove. We will also enjoy a scavenger hunt, and a book about animals in the winter.

The Southern Midcoast Forest Playgroup is a free, parent-facilitated program that aims to provide a space for children to explore, learn, and interact outside. They meet every Thursday at 9:30 a.m. at different locations in the Southern Midcoast region. Weekly adventures are typically posted in their Facebook group.

Parking is available at the trailhead or across the street at the Wilson’s Cove trailhead. Families do not need to bring anything but themselves and appropriate attire based on location and weather. We will meet rain or shine!

Southern Midcoast Forest Playgroup is partnering with Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust, Harpswell Heritage Land Trust, Kennebec Estuary Land Trust, Cathance River Education Alliance, Growing to Give, and the Adaptive Outdoor Education Center to offer nature-based activities and exploration. Each week a different one of these organizations will host the activity portion of the gathering.
