In 2017, a core group of organizations with a shared vision for nature-based education began to broaden into a multi-sector network of support for outdoor learning in Maine. This broad consortium seeks not to be duplicative, competitive, or redundant, but rather to focus on work that is systemic and transformational, such that no individual organization could accomplish it alone.

There are many ways to be involved in the network and we would love to have you join us in working to elevate and support outdoor learning throughout the Maine. There  are three main roles in the Consortium: in the Steering Committee, on a Task Force, or as an NBEC Ambassador. Read below to learn more! If you have limited time but still want to contribute, we always have need for occasional volunteers.
