That was just the start of their journey in educating their children using the natural world as a classroom, and since then, Cindy has become an accomplished author and has helped numerous parents with the nuts and bolts of how to get their kids outside.

  • 4/22 Anywhere – Continental Divide Trail Coalition Speaker Series: Conversations Across the Continent.
