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.
