Montana Outdoor Science School's mission is to promote an awareness, understanding and appreciation of the natural world through quality educational experiences.


 Montana Outdoor Science School focuses on getting people who live in the Gallatin Valley and surrounding land outside to learn about the ecosystems in which they live. We offer outstanding, tailored school programs during the school year that can last anywhere from one hour to several months in duration. Our Summer Camps are a Bozeman staple and offer children the chance to become more engaged in their surroundings. We also offer Adult Workshops, such as Master Naturalist, year-round opportunities for citizens to learn more about the amazing flora, fauna and geology that call Montana and Yellowstone National Park home. 


We know that getting people outside is vital. New studies show that children, on average, spend almost eight hours per day with a screen of some sort in from of their faces. Our programs help reverse this trend while boosting scientific literacy, a calling in our Strategic Plan. We hope that in creating a generation of children who actively participate in the outdoors and have a strong core of scientific knowledge that we will be creating the stewards of tomorrow.



MOSS has launched its first-ever "Friends of MOSS" group. You can become a Friend of MOSS and have your voice in our future direction, plus receive discounts on outstanding MOSS programs.
