Yarmouth, Maine – September 16, 2020 – Chimani, Inc, announced today the launch of a comprehensive outdoor recreational guide for the state of Maine, its first state-wide recreational guide. The guide includes details on national parks, wildlife refuges, state parks, and nature preserves throughout the state.
The guide also includes details on activities such as nature walks, hiking, birding, mountain biking, swimming, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. The new guide has a particular focus on the coast with details on every public coastal access site throughout Maine, 90 beaches including tide charts for the most popular ones, and public launches for boaters and paddlers.
“We are excited to help visitors and Mainers explore this amazing state we call home”, said Kerry Gallivan, CEO & Founder of Chimani. “The COVID pandemic has forced us all to look more local for our adventures and Maine has an endless supply of them,” says Kerry.
And just in time for the fall foliage season, the guide includes details on Maine’s scenic byways, lighthouses, waterfalls, covered bridges, memorials, and natural wonders.
Similar to all other Chimani guides, users can use the Pokemon Go-like feature to earn points and collect virtual badges. With each visit to a nature preserve, users “check-in” to confirm their location using the GPS signal on their device and the app will unlock a special badge for each preserve. “Our badge game is the most popular feature for our national park guides so we’re excited to now have it available for all the amazing places in Maine,” says Kerry Gallivan.
The Chimani Maine guide also includes topographic maps that provide trails details and the ability to know your exact location at any time. The maps are available to download for offline usage because Maine certainly has its cell phone coverage issues.
