  • Kids are on screens 7 - 9 hours a day!
  • Many kids are overweight, anxious, depressed & even suicidal.
  • Children are carrying this sedentary lifestyle and disconnection with nature into adulthood, creating a troubling national trend for the future of conservation, our economy, and the health & wellness of our communities.
Who Introduced You to the Outdoors?
Our founder has spent over 40 years introducing people to outdoor passions.

He credits his love of the outdoors and connection with nature as a key to his physical, mental & spiritual health.

Today he leads a team of over 60 volunteers representing 35 outdoor passions.  These amazing people realize how lucky they were to have a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle introduce them to the outdoors & they want to share their passion!
George and his team were amazing teachers with a wealth of knowledge and patience that made the experience an unforgettable one for both me and my son.

The kids loved George and immediately wanted him back.

He kept them fully engaged and did a great job simplifying what for many is a complicated topic.

- Christina Byther, Teacher - Westbrook High School Compass Academy

My son left the experience being the happiest I had seen him in a long while.
On the way home he commented, “This was the best day ever!”

If it weren’t for my dad introducing me to the great outdoors, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
I don’t think there’s anything more valuable, more life changing, than getting kids off electronics and into nature.  And there’s so much here in our backyard that most kids never discover.
- Joe Capozza, Volunteer - Falmouth
I was interested in everything he talked about and would like him to come back.
