Hello, I am Stephen Madera.
My furry friends and I are working together as Song in the Woods to bring you dogsled adventures this winter. For me, this is a dream come true.
In 1987 I began working in the wilderness education field. Much of my time has been with Outward Bound Schools in Maine, Canada, Minnesota and Texas. I am a certified Wilderness First Responder and a Registered Maine Guide.
My purpose is to provide you with fun experience, that is safe, courteous and affordable.
I offer short trips, day trips,and multi-day trips. Most of my multi-day trips are designed to prolong the back country feel and allow you to still have most of the comforts of home.
On these trips we will be staying at local sporting camps that are staffed with hospitable owners who enjoy making your trip a memorable vacation.
You will be visiting the area of Gulf Hagas and the Roach Ponds just east of Moosehead Lake.
My full, half day and multi-day back country trips will feature MUSH YOUR OWN TEAM as an exciting option. There is nothing like working with a team- the feel of the sled and getting in tune with the dogs.
Hello, my name is Zachary Talmadge
and I help Stephen Madera run Song in the Woods Dog Sledding Adventures.
I am a Unity College Graduate, with a Bachelors of Science degree from majoring in Adventure Education Leadership. I am also a Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician, a Search and Rescue volunteer, a Nationally Registered Emergency Medical Technician, and I am about to take my Maine State Recreational Guides Test.
I started helping Stephen in January 2005 by simply assisting with a few of his larger trips. However, things quickly snowballed from there.I
I enjoyed helping Stephen and dog sledding so much that I expressed my eagerness to continue helping, I have since taken on a larger role in the business.
Now both Stephen and I are making plans to both extend the dog sledding season and offer trips into the Maine Wilderness during other seasons for you.
