MOAC is an all-volunteer member organization. Members organize and lead all trips and activities from beginner to expert. Our outdoor activities range from peaceful and relaxing to challenging and full of excitement. From the extremes of winter camping, ice/rock climbing, strenuous hiking, mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, to the gentle sail, walk or snowshoe, MOAC has something to offer everyone. We are a diverse group with members of all ages and experience. Join MOAC to challenge yourself, share your outdoor skills and meet other outdoor adventurers!












Individual Memberships $20/year and Family Memberships $30/year

  • Chris Bennett To Ride For Suicide Prevention

    Chris Bennett (https://www.cbennettphoto.com/) presented his photography and skiing adventures at our February meeting.

    Donate to Chris’ ride at this link: https://afsp.donordrive.com/campaign/RideforSuicidePrevention

    “Starting the first week of March 2020 I will attempt to ride my bike from San Diego, California to Portland, Maine.  The goal of this journey of almost 4000 miles, which I hope to complete in two months, is to raise funds for suicide prevention, erase the stigma surrounding suicide and its causes, to encourage those suffering from mental illness to seek treatment, and to show support for the families and friends of the 30,000 Americans who die by suicide and the 20 million people that suffer from depression each year.”

    I also have a Facebook fundraiser called “Chris rides across the country for suicide prevention”


    Folks can see my interviews with survivors and families there.

    Thank you so much!

  • Volunteers Needed

    MOAC is a 100% volunteer organization. Things only happen if people step up to do them. MOAC needs:

    Keeper Of The Inventory – MOAC doesn’t own much but we need someone to keep what we do have under control. Mostly consumables we use at events (paper products, plastic silverware, etc).

    Please email board@moac.org if you are interested in helping out. MOAC only works because volunteers decide to make it happen!
