Bio
The New England Outdoor Center recognizes the significance of the local environment. We, as a company, believe in the spirit of adventure, and want to nurture that in our visitors. We want to promote experiences which will and can have long lasting positive effects in people's lives. We hope that positive change will follow them home or on their next adventure. Through the activities we have designed for families, we want to assist parents in cultivating outdoor skills and environmental values; especially those parents who may not know where or how to support their children in the outdoors. We are excited to be a part of the international trend to get kids up, out and fostering healthy lifestyles.

The Farewell Season

I found it this year, the farewell season.  Fumbling toward spring I happened upon it. The moment…the moment where we turn our face from winter. Hunched and pinched, we turn, we straighten.  We notice light, growth and in the past, I have run to spring. Spring with her open, crocus filled arms teaming with new life. …

Ice Fishing: Resolutions and Realizations

There are lists everywhere in our house.  Grocery lists, honey-do lists, the lists go on…  And this is where my husband and I found ourselves on New Year’s day, creating another list.  Not an exciting list, not a bucket list or list of our favorite things, as usual, this list consisted of chores and mundane must do’s.  All the “shoulds” lined up in a neat row waiting to be anointed with a holy “you are a good person” check mark.  So, I am sure you can imagine my relief when Matt Polstein…

Remembering Roots

Any Mainer knows that tanning is a lofty endeavor. However, futile as it maybe, I found myself this morning trying to attain that sun kissed glow on a logging road in northern Maine. It seemed the perfect plan. I need to prepare for my upcoming nuptial. The dress is strapless and I am the queen of the farmer’s tan. I also needed to walk my dogs, so two birds with one stone, right? Wrong! In my attempt to be efficient, all I returned with was a number of deer fly welts in places they should…

Wild Child

Bloodsuckers, fart putty, and Oreos-are not typical items we associate with wilderness adventure. In my mind, wilderness adventure is technical and requires you know how to tie really good knots, knots that hold and are “unknottable”. When I think about wilderness adventure I envision crampons, harnesses and grizzly bears. I see white water, webbing and maps. I know instinctively that it is not for the faint of heart because I recognize that wilderness has no bounds and adventure seeks to…

Hi Sarah. I join Suz in welcoming you to The Children & Nature Nework, and especially to the Natural Teachers Network group site. I have some close friends who live in Penobscot. What a wonderful place to get outdoors. Loved your blogs, especially the Eighth Intelligence. I thought I was reading Last Child in the Woods. Please share your experiences with teachers on the Natural Teachers Network. Your work with families is very important. Perhaps there are cross-over areas of learning for teachers as well. The Children & Nature Network wants to reach everyone in the continuum that touches the life of a child. Thanks again, post often and encourage others to join our network.

Hi Sarah! Hearty welcome to the forum. I'm glad you're here and that you jumped in by posting pictures and blog pieces and by joining groups. NEOC sounds wonderful. I hope you continue to make yourself at home on the forum, that you find it rich with resources and discussion, and that you keep adding your visuals and voice to the mix. Cheers!
