The Katahdin Learning Project is a place-based learning program in the Katahdin region offering a variety of programs to nurture connections between learners and land in Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument and the surrounding communities. Programs vary through the seasons and include lessons and activities in the national monument, outdoor learning at local schools, place-based and service-learning projects, trail crew opportunities, and teacher professional development. Since its founding by local teachers and National Park Service staff in 2016, the Katahdin Learning Project has engaged over 6,700 students from the Katahdin Region and other parts of Maine through more than 330 programs (as of summer 2021). The Katahdin Learning Project welcomes educators and students from all areas to engage in programming in the Monument, for more information contact Kala Rush, Education Director at email@example.com.
We envision a community where learners benefit from a breadth and depth of place-based experiences, forge lifelong connections to nature and their communities, and realize the full potential of their education. We envision a community where Wabanaki people determine how Indigenous and settler peoples learn about the history and culture of the Wabanaki Nations.
The mission of the Katahdin Learning Project is to nurture connections between learners and land in Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument and the surrounding communities.
