Join us in advance of Governor Baxter Day (August 22) for this special film screening about Maine’s highest peak. Five years in the making and 100 minutes in length, Wilderness and Spirit, A Mountain Called Katahdin, captures the spirit of Katahdin and the people who have been drawn to it. The film explores ways of thinking about the wilderness and how people from many walks of life, past to the present, have found spiritual solace and strength in the mountain.
