Bringing Good News to the Hiking Community

Event BLASTS Past Anticipated Numbers

February's Park Blast was an absolute HIT. With close to 200 participants hiking in our county parks, new stories of friendship, joy, and fun unfolded. Comments like, "I had never known this park existed!" to, "The treasure hunt made it easy to get the kids away from the video games!" fuel the fires within us to continue designing events and programs that will write new stories for those in our community for years to come!
