Mountain bikers receive 2020 Connecting Nature & Community Award from Coastal Mountains Land Trust
Every year, Coastal Mountains Land Trust recognizes volunteers, community groups, and land donors for their commitment and involvement. This year the Land Trust is thrilled to announce its selection of Midcoast Chapter of the New England Mountain Biking (McNEMBA) as one two recipients of the Connecting Nature & Community Award which honors the individual or entity that has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to engaging the people of our community with the outdoors and the lands protected by the Land Trust.
Since 2008, the group has partnered with the Land Trust on the construction, maintenance, and promotion of a growing network of mountain biking trails near the Camden Snow Bowl. An all-volunteer organization, members have been dedicating themselves to taking care of the places that they ride, preserving open space, and educating the mountain bike community about the importance of responsible riding. McNEMBA members contribute significant volunteer trail stewardship efforts and sponsored a mile marker on the Round the Mountain Trail.

Coastal Mountains Land Trust has worked since 1986 to permanently conserve land to benefit the natural and human communities of the western Penobscot Bay. The Land Trust has protected over 12,000 acres, offering 50+ miles of trails for public recreation.
