This was a great hike! I have hiked in the park many times but learning about the history and environment gave me a whole new perspective.

Gorgeous day, bluebirds, amiable companions, great observations from Rick, a bit of snow and ice to provide a modicum of challenge. Ideal start to the year.

This was an excellent introductory course to building a fire with a flint and steel; building a debris shelter, and orienterering. Thank you, Andy!

the book was really good. Domonic led the way on the scavenger hunt. He really likes going to the "new spot". He even spotted changing leaves later on that day.

Again my grandson was totally involved. You should hear him tell Mommy and Daddy about his adventure. He explains about everything and especially goes into detail about the scavenger hunts. He is able to explain why he was able to circle each thing on the paper. As a retired kindergarten teacher I especially liked the Busy Tree book.

I was unable to participate but have been on the walks in the past and enjoyed the exercise, the talks and the company.

I totally enjoyed the outing. Domonic really warmed up to
Andy and wanted to show him everything. The activities and book were very good. He couldn't stop talking about it when his mom got home.

Well organized event that was a partnership between DCNR and Wildlands Conservancy. Boats were provided as well as transportation back to the cars. Safety crew was available and helpful, all of the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The entire trip was well planned and went smoothly. This was a great activity for the whole family. Let's get together and do it again soon!
