The Great Maine Outdoor Weekend (GMOW) is a collaboration among several of Maine's leading environmental organizations to promote outdoor recreation and encourage more Mainers to take advantage of our State's extraordinary recreation opportunities and public lands. The 4th GMOW was held September 28-30th. Statewide, 70 organizations hosted almost 100 events attended by over 7,100 people. In support of the event, FOSM organized a nature walk and wildlife viewing tour on the newly acquired Gervais conservation property. Maine Audubon's Scarborough Marsh Nature Center Director Linda Woodard led the program. In 2012 FOSM worked with the Maine Dept of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife and other organizations to refurbish a former cellular tower that sits on the property. There is now an observation deck open to the public.
Conserve, protect, restore, and enhance the Scarborough Marsh.
