Gift Ideas to Get Outdoors
Amidst the pandemic this holiday season, Maine Outdoor Brands is following two simple principles. First, spending time outdoors with friends and family is the best place to be. And second, now more than ever, we must support our local economy. We invite you to discover and support the dozens of Maine-based outdoor gear makers and experience providers in our holiday gift guide. The products and services featured showcase the depth, innovation, and entrepreneurship of our local outdoor economy.
May your holiday season be full of outdoor adventure!
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.
