Steve Harris Millmond founded The Mosaic Outdoor Mountain Club in Colorado in reaction to his perception that modern Judaism had lost touch with the outdoors and the environment. The name, "Mosaic," refers to Moses, and the organization was directed toward the Jewish community, including Jewish singles. The group's first event, a hike in the Rocky Mountains, was held in December of 1988. The organization was incorporated as a Colorado nonprofit coporation on 5/11/1989. Outdoor events, including hiking, canoeing, skiing, and bicycling, were hosted at least several times per month. Colorado's chapter of the Mosaic Outdoor Mountain Club was the first chapter in an organization that eventually included more than 20 local chapters in three countries. An international umbrella organization, Mosaic Outdoor Clubs of America, was founded in 1995.
