HOST A MAEOE MEETUP!
We are making the MAEOE Meetup a more regular happening. The goal is to provide 4 opportunities a year (one/season) for members to meet up to learn about the outdoors and the environment and spread these events out across our state, with North, South, East and West being the focus.
If you have a great place for members to explore the outdoors, or the indoors, and you are willing to lead, this is your opportunity. Hikes, bike rides, museums, nature centers, sanctuaries--we want to give unique opportunities to our members to explore our state.
If you are interested in leading a Meetup, please fill the host application. We are looking for meetups starting in winter (late 2021 or early 2022).
