As we continue to work through the challenges of living through a pandemic it is important to find things in life that make us happy especially amidst the holiday season. For the second year of Maine Outdoor Brands’ annual Gift Guide, we have selected a variety of new brands for you to explore. Showcased is a diverse selection of exciting products and services provided by local Maine businesses specializing in outdoor recreation. Take some time to get outdoors with your friends and family and support local businesses to create memories that will last a lifetime. We hope to give you every opportunity to find your next adventure in the outdoors.
How the Gift Guide Was Born
The Maine Outdoor Brands Gift Guide was a collaborative effort between Maine Outdoor Brands and the University of Maine Farmington Outdoor Recreation Business Administration Program. Are you looking for something that combines your passion for the great outdoors with a valuable skill set that’ll allow you to manage — or start your own — four-season outdoor recreation-related businesses? Then our Outdoor Recreation Business Administration (ORBA) program may be the call of the wild for you. ORBA is an innovative academic program with a broad four-season focus and an emphasis on business, with substantial coursework in outdoor recreation — including areas like snow sports, the river industry, adventure sports, hiking and camping, golf, and inland fishing.
