I know we had a night hike scheduled for Thursday, and that will still be taking place under another member's leadership.
I saw an interview with the guy that found Vivian's photos in a storage auction a while back. He was discussing making the documentary, and I told Josh I would really like to see it when it came out. I was fascinated then, and I have found out that the movie is now in limited release. Thursday will be the last day it is available to be seen in Houston. I have to go!
The crazy thing is Vivian Maier took over 100,000 candid shots of her neighborhood, and nobody (even her closest friends) had any idea she was a photographer. She never shared her photos with anyone and had a very secretive life as a nanny.
NEO is a Houston based 501(c)(3) organization that hosts events and activities in Texas and beyond. We are dedicated to helping people of all ages and backgrounds enjoy the outdoors and share their experiences with others. NEO kindles a deeper passion for life by connecting people to nature and each other. Check out our website at www.NEOproject.org!
Our mission is to encourage people to lead more outdoor oriented lives for better health, happiness, and life balance.
NEO events are open to everyone, and many activities are family, kid, and pet friendly! Most events are absolutely FREE! We supplement our regular outdoor events with amazing cultural opportunities and low cost travel adventures. Our goal is to make outdoor activities and incredible travel events affordable for everyone.
We love being outdoors! We want to make sure everyone has the chance to experience hiking, camping, backpacking, cycling, kayaking, and anything else they would like to try out. We love to travel and get out of the hustle and bustle of the city, and we want others to have this opportunity to travel with us in a safe and relaxed environment. NEO may host an all day hike at Brazos Bend State Park, a weekend camp at Pedernales Falls, or a cool mid-week night hike at Memorial Park. You could even find us introducing members to the Colorado Rockies on a long weekend! Whatever NEO does, we’re going to make some new friends, create amazing lifelong memories, and have a blast!
Through our “Wilderness Kids” initiative, NEO encourages kids and families to get off the couch, away from the video games and cell phones, and OUTSIDE. With the help of contributions and donations, NEO hosts events and clinics designed to teach kids necessary skills for enjoying outdoor activities and thriving in the natural world. Kids develop leadership and teamwork skills while learning about water safety, hiking, camping, nature and wildlife, and so much more! They are also introduced to people from all walks of life and from all over the world, giving them a broader understanding of the world and cultures around them.
