Walk this way

Despite Saturday's hot and thunderstormy forecast, 20 people showed up for the CPOP nature hike!

I'd be just as happy leading a hike for two people, because I love spending time in the woods, but it's amazing and encouraging to see that so many other people want to share this experience.
I'm particularly impressed by the large contingent of kids on our hikes. As the mama of a two-year-old, I know how a "simple" task like "getting out the door on time" can be a monumental challenge -- and I just have one child!

Kids are wonderful to have on nature hikes because they point out all the amazing little critters that adults walk right past.
Our next hike will be Saturday, June 28, 10:00am to 11:30am. Mark your calendars!
