Meet J. Porter Hammitt, Founder of MOLA.  

MOLA is currently in its 23rd year and has grown steadily over time, starting with Porter and one intern in 2000, renting all the gear that was needed.  Operations now include up to 15 staff members in summer, 9 vans, 6 trailers, a fleet of canoes, rafts, climbing gear, and more.  MOLA serves hundreds of area youth every year, and MOLA programs have worked with 1000’s of youth over the years!

We are very excited to announce that MOLA is now under the ownership of Tom & Catherine Holland of Wilderness Adventures, based out of Jackson, Wyoming.  Their organization has provided outdoor adventure programs for young people for 50 years!  For more info, please visit their website at, or email them at
