Anyone talking to me finds out quickly that I am a huge proponent of getting kids out into the wilderness. Bending Branches interviewed me on this topic and published the article this morning. My kids make a lot of appearances

Love the interview. I am always a fan of getting kids out to introduce them to nature. I have 3 kids (all grown now) I had them out on hiking trips very young. But sad to say I lost one to the gaming world :(

I agree with the importance of getting kids into the wilderness. We took our kids on trips every year beginning at age three.  Now we are beginning to take our grandchildren.  A wonderful way to foster an appreciation for the environment, develop problem solving skills, and improve resilience. Plus it's just fun!
