OSI Community Gathering Flyer 10.16.19.png

Learn more about what’s happening with outdoor equipment, trails, and programs in Millinocket. Find out what efforts are underway, and how you can be involved. This is a community gathering and all are welcome. Drinks, snacks, and a short film will be shared.

This is a relaxed social gathering where we’ll share the following:

  1. Update everyone on what's been happening since the spring regarding community programming, Katahdin Area Trails work, and the Katahdin Gear Library.

  2. Explain the community outdoor inventory project we’ll begin conducting this fall (including work on the trails inventory outlined in the Katahdin Gazetteer)

  3. Share our excitement and celebrate the successes with local trail development this season.

We’ll have light food, beverages, and a fantastic short film to share. This is open to anyone involved with, or interested in, the Outdoor Community Team, and the general public is encouraged to attend. Please share, bring your friends, and come enjoy an evening together.

The Outdoor Sport Institute

The mission of OSI is to strengthen communities through outdoor sport, and explore outdoor sport through community. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization.

We seek to:

  • Build a community’s capacity to envision and create an active, outdoor culture

  • Build capacity of teens and adults to serve as outdoor sport mentors & leaders where they live

  • Foster intergenerational relationships within the community through outdoor sport

  • Use outdoor sport to teach skills that foster self-determination capacities including but not limited to self-efficacy, self-confidence, resilience, discipline, risk management, judgment, and decision making.
