In 2018, 4 friends brought together by the Hurricane Island Outward Bound School decided to embark on the biggest expedition of their lives -- canoeing from Umiujaq to Kangirsuk, in Quebec. The expedition began two years prior when Wilderness Educator, Beth Jackson, decided to try to do a big expedition with zero single-use plastic. After 15 years of working as a wilderness instructor, Beth grew tired of throwing away countless plastic bags at each expedition's end, and set out to solve the problem. The Canoe Ungava team got just what they were looking for. Epic challenge, countless adventures, and successfully reduced expedition waste. While cold misty weather kept them in dry suits, their homemade reusable food bags, reusable pack liners, and food packing scheme kept the essentials dry. Intentional food planning and a hyper-organized system reduced their post-expedition landfill contributions to a soccer-ball sized wad of non-recyclable items.

Astraea is being screened as part of Maine in the Movies, a statewide festival of films set in Maine, to help celebrate Maine?s Bicentennial. Astraea is screening at 4pm on Saturday, March 7th ONLY. This film is FREE for Gem Members. When an epidemic nearly wipes out the human race, a telepathic teenage girl named Astraea has visions of survivors living in New Brunswick. She leads her doubting brother on a 5,000-mile journey through a silent and abandoned America into the snowbound wilderness, hoping to rebuild life as she knew it. As they head north, her clairvoyance intensifies and they encounter a wary young couple, homesteading on a remote lake in Western Maine. The grief and complexity?as well as the excitement and comfort?of encountering other normal humans pits itself against Astraea?s desire to keep moving and find her family. This post-apocalyptic film, spectacularly shot in wintry Maine landscapes, uses sensitivity and intellect rather than special effects to show not what humanity is running from, but what we?re running towards.

Blow the Man Down will screen at 7pm on March 7th ONLY. This film is FREE for Gem Members. Blow the Man Down Synopsis: Welcome to Easter Cove, a remote and insular fishing village on Maine?s rocky coast. In this small town, bonds run as deep as the ocean and secrets are as thick as the morning fog. Each day, droves of men take to sea for the daily catch while a handful of women serve as the community?s powerful, albeit discrete, operators. Though the self-interested code of the town?s old guard has governed for years, our tale takes place as the tides are turning in Easter Cove. Mary Margaret Connolly, a beloved and integral town matriarch, has just passed away. In the wake of her death, her daughters, Mary Beth and Priscilla, face an uncertain future, haunted by bills and unpaid loans left behind. Priscilla tries to fill her mother?s shoes by taking over the family fish shop while her younger sister Mary Beth refuses to accept the new responsibilities. The sisters find themselves at odds and Mary Beth stubbornly defends her dream of leaving town ? even if it means abandoning Priscilla altogether. ?
