ATV MAINE at park to promote ATV riding

GRAY — The Maine Wildlife Park will join ATV MAINE to learn all about the growing sport of ATVing in Maine — with an opportunity to try riding an ATV — from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, July 20.

ATV Maine is a 501(c)(3) membership organization with close to 6,000 members in 83 ATV clubs statewide. The purpose is to promote education in the safe and responsible use of ATVs, be a unified voice on ATV legislative issues and to share information with club affiliates and the public.

ATVs for children and adults will be on site to try and recreational safety instructors will be on hand. For more information, visit
