We are an open, inclusive, group of parents looking for others to share in outdoor adventures with our kids. Turn off the TV, unplug the video games, and join us in celebrating the beauty and bounty of nature! We will start with local park play days and hikes, and hopefully begin organizing camping, fishing, kayaking, and other more adventurous outings! This group is open and welcoming to ALL families: single parents, married parents, divorced parents, co-parents living together or separately, LGBT parents, Grandparent-parents, adopted or foster parents, and any other creative family organizational units.

Our main focus is on reducing or eliminating media presence (tv, movies, video games, etc.) in our children's lives in favor of creating opportunities for more quality active family time together. For this reason we ask that you refrain from bringing children's media devices (video games, ipads, phones) to events and that you endeavor to minimize your own cell-phone use during the event.

Events are all-ages, unless otherwise specified. For age-specific events, younger siblings are always welcome, unless otherwise noted.
