Watershed Weekend








Since 1999, Camp Calumet has hosted GMCG’s annual Watershed Weekend on Ossipee Lake. Each year representatives from dozens of environmental groups and state agencies are on hand to staff informational booths, give lectures, and host hikes and boat rides. Dinner and entertainment are also provided by Camp Calumet on Saturday night. Each Watershed Weekend focuses on a specific issue related to watersheds. GMCG is grateful for the generous support from the Jocelyn F. Gutchess Fund of the Lakes Region Charitable Foundation for Watershed Weekend.
