Nat Geo Young Explorer

The North Woods is a geographic region in northern Maine, covering nearly 3.5 million acres and known for its low population, immense woodlands, and amazing recreational opportunities. My four expeditions will take me to the Maine North Woods in all four seasons, exploring the headwaters of the Penobscot, Kennebec, Allagash, Aroostook, and Saint John’s Rivers. As I trace these waterways, I will also explore the conservation status of the region, and what the future could look like for the Maine North Woods.

A huge thank you to the National Geographic Young Explorers Program for funding and working with me on my expedition, and to Elliotsville Plantation for providing additional funding!
