The Outdoor Teacher Collaborative Connects Local Teachers to the Outdoors and Eachother

The collaborative is a unique professional development opportunity for K-12 educators within an hour of Acadia National Park to gain hands-on experience in Acadia National Park.

Teachers Gain Hands-On, In-Park Training & Experience

The Outdoor Teacher Collaborative is focused on local teachers – typically within an hour of Acadia National Park – who come to Acadia one day a week for four weeks. Teachers who participate in the Outdoor Teacher Collaborative may also be recipients of one of Friends of Acadia’s Outdoor Classroom Grants.

The Collaborative was initially launched to help teachers implement those grants and create a community of outdoor educators who could connect with and learn from each other.
