In twenty years, Maine is known as a place where our schools and other means for educating young people are key elements in vibrant communities connected to the natural landscapes of Maine - the lands, waterways, and ocean. Maine students understand the connection between their health and the health of the natural world. They are civically engaged members of their communities, towns and regions.
A VISION FOR MAINE
WHO ARE WE?
We are a growing multi-sector network of organizations focused on building support for and equitable access to outdoor learning opportunities for all Maine youth. We believe that all Maine youth deserve the opportunity to learn outside in ways that connect them to their community and the natural world.

...Create sustainable, statewide funding for outdoor learning for all Maine youth
...Communicate the impact of outdoor learning to the development of youth, their communities, and the State of Maine
...Generate support for outdoor learning, and for the schools, organizations, and communities that are deeply embedded in this work.
