Help Us Grow- Capital Campaign
Our first ever Capital Campaign is underway. With your help we will add these Great buildings. Read more about our plans and how you can help here. The Portland Press Herald recently covered our campaign and our successes – click here.
Hidden Valley Nature Center is a forest-based 501(c)(3) non-profit education center. More than 30 miles of trails and over one mile of shoreline on Little Dyer Pond give visitors access to 1,000 acres of contiguous forest in mid-coast Maine. The trail network connects the pond with one of the most ecologically diverse and undeveloped roadless tracts of forestland in the region – making it a gem of wilderness in the midst of the rapidly developing Mid-Coast region. Hidden Valley Nature Center’s mission has three parts: (1) To offer premier opportunities for outdoor, non-motorized recreation; (2) To offer educational opportunities related to the natural world, ecological literacy, and sustainable communities; and (3) To model innovative and sustainable forestry practices.
