This is an amazing program and I would love to have them back!

Who we are.

 

Maine Outdoor School’s (MOS) mission is to serve as an educational catalyst for personal and community resilience in Downeast Maine through the lenses of economic vitality, environmental sustainability, and social equity.

What we do.

Educational Programs

All MOS educational programs focus on personal and community resilience through custom-tailored outdoor, place-based experiences.

Organizational Services

We offer a wide array of organizational services to help advance your business or non-profit's capacity for resilience and innovation.

Speaking Engagements

Add context, focus, or energy to your next gathering with one of MOS's presentations on topics ranging from resilience and sustainability to education and the outdoors.

What do our programs look like?

Experiential. Hands-on. Interdisciplinary.

What better way is there to learn about the diversity of flower colors than matching them to color sample paint chips?

What better way is there to explore coastal ecology than pawing through tidepools?

What better way is there to learn new activities to teach than by diving in and experiencing them yourself?

MOS EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS AND ORGANIZATIONAL SERVICES SOLVE REAL-WORLD PROBLEMS THROUGH INTERDISCIPLINARY INQUIRY AND INNOVATION.
