Join Enock Glidden as he shares stories of his life using the question “How can I?” to accomplish many adventures, including his 2016 ascent of El Capitan. He will also delve into his work with Maine Trail Finder and his mission to get more people of all abilities to enjoy the outdoors of Maine.
An avid and accomplished outdoorsman, Enock Glidden can be found adventuring every season of the year throughout his home state of Maine. As a person born with a disability, Enock is a passionate advocate for making trails more accessible for all. He hikes extensively, assessing and writing about his experiences through the award-winning Maine Trail Finder website. His blogs and experiences have been shared widely in local, state, and national media outlets, and Maine Magazine named him one of their Mainers of the Year in 2022. Out on trails, Enock works directly with trail managers to assess both physical and communication barriers that can be minimized or eliminated to make those experiences more accessible and welcoming for everyone. This in-person program is being co-hosted by the Wells Reserve and York County Audubon, and will be held in the Wells Reserve’s Mather Auditorium, beginning at 7 p.m. It will be in-person only without Zoom streaming. A suggested donation of $5 would be greatly appreciated to help offset the costs of this special program. We hope to see you there!
