A former award-winning science educator, Wendy Gorton is keen on helping families and programs understand how kids think and what motivates them outside. She is the author of the National Outdoor Book Award-winning series, 50 Hikes with Kids. Last fall, 50 Hikes with Kids: New England was released which highlights 10 different amazing hikes for kids across the state. The book empowers kids to lead the way through engaging strategies for each hike. This hands-on interactive webinar will highlight the top Vermont trails that you can explore this summer, and also run through innovative and different activities you can do with kids on the trail including: scavenger hunts, nature journaling, prioritizing, favoriting, researching, and contributing to the community hikes using AllTrails; identifying flora and fauna using iNaturalist and Seek from; identifying peaks around you using PeakVisor; geocaching by finding small treasures hidden with permission on public lands; learning mapping and orienteering skills with Google Maps, Compass, and Mapping apps such as Strava and GPS Tracker; and connecting with parks using social media accounts. We'll have door prizes including copies of Wendy's hiking guide for kids!
