Welcome to Adventure Learning at MOSS

Welcome to Adventure Learning at the University of Idaho's McCall Outdoor Science School (MOSS). MOSS Adventure Learning is a place where students everywhere, and of all ages, share technology to engage – not disengage – in the ecosystems where we live. What seasonal changes are happening around you? What are MOSS professors observing in Idaho's West-Central Mountains? The following links offer places for us to share our questions and curiosities. Use MOSS lessons to explore your own communities; participate in blogs to post questions and observations; peruse MOSS research; watch graduate students take a stab at making videos and podcasts; and engage in the "Weekly Outdoor Challenge" to get away from the screen and into the field. We challenge you to step outside, observe, explore, then let us know what you see. The adventure awaits. Come join us!
