Since 2012, MOEP has been committed to creating a meaningful and enriching opportunity for students, emphasizing environmental awareness and lifetime fitness. MOEP has developed an interdisciplinary curriculum to complement the students’ classroom teaching with time devoted to outdoor activity. This serves to integrate an awareness of aerobic fitness with future stewardship of the environment.
WHO WE ARE
Through MOEP’s Fall, Winter and Spring programs, students from Fourth Grade through High School learn lessons in botany, dendrology, geology, geography, and ecology, while participating in four-hour long activities such as Mountain Biking, Cross Country Skiing, Canoeing and Kayaking. These field trips take place in the Penobscot watershed, at our Maine Outdoor Education Program Base on the East Branch of the Penobscot River in Maine’s North Woods.
MOEP programs are executed by an experienced outdoor recreation center that serves the Northern Maine community. Since 2012, more than 15,000 students have taken part in MOEP programs.
