What we're about

If you have kids and like hiking, this group is for you! We will be meeting at various parks throughout Los Angeles for hiking with our kids. My kids are 2 and 4 but all ages are welcome from infant thru adolescent. The goal is to teach our kids to notice the plants and animals around them and the beauty of nature. Slow-pokes welcome!

Currently most meets are scheduled 9 AM Saturdays. If you'd like to organize one at a different time, please contact me about becoming an event organizer.
