In our area, there are several groups that are working hard to get children, families and adults off their devices and outside. One of those groups is Heavners Canoe Livery. Alan Heavner works hard to provide canoe trips, campfires and all kinds of meet-up situations to get folks active doing fun river trips and experiencing nature all around the metro area. Another group is the Adventure League that is active year round with hikes, biking, and even snow shoeing. There are all kinds of hayrides, spooky cornfields and local park activities this time of year. So lets get out there and get our eyes off the games and apps, and get searching instead for Blue Herons, river otters and turtles!
This is our ongoing blog with articles on the environment, local news and events, and issues related to land conservation.
