BANGOR — The Cole Land Transportation Museum of Bangor and House in the Woods Military and Family Retreat of Lee share a common goal of supporting veterans. In an effort to attain that goal we have teamed up to host a free Registered Maine Guide School for Veterans May 4-6, at the Cole Land Transportation Museum, 405 Perry Road.

This program is open to all Maine veterans, or active/reserve members who have served honorably in the United States Armed Forces. There is a limit of 25 students for the course. The 25 students will be selected through an application process.

This is a three-day course that will teach the successful applicant the skills needed to pass the Registered Maine Guide Exam administered by the Maine State Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Department in the disciplines of hunting, fishing, and/or recreation. This course does not administer any certification exams and is not affiliated with the State of Maine in any way.

This guide course program is May 4-5 2018. Sunday May 6th, participants have the option to take First Aid course and receive their certification, a requirement to become a Registered Maine Guide. The course times are 8 a.m.-6 p.m. at the Cole Land Transportation Museum on 405 Perry Road Bangor, Maine

To apply go to, click on the veterans program tab at the top of the page and download an application packet. Fill out the packet according to the application instructions and fax, email, or mail the completed packet back to the Cole Land Transportation Museum. The application deadline is April 2, 2018.

Lodging is provided free of charge at the House in the Woods Lodge in Lee, Maine to the veterans attending the guide course.
