When I take the kids hiking I almost invariably go across the Golden Gate Bridge into Marin County. The variety in trails and environments is fantastic, and I not-so-secretly want to move to Marin County one day.
You don’t have to be a solo-trekker or Marin resident to enjoy the experience, though. Naturebridge, a non-profit dedicated to getting your kids’ asses off the couch and onto a log around a campfire in the woods is kicking off their school year of programs at the Headlands Institute in the Marin Headlands on September 11th.
The first event is a campfire/hike from 6-8:30 tonight. You can register here. It’s $10 per person.
I may miss this event, but I’m going to keep the calendar of events in mind when I’m trying to think of ways to get the kids out of the house without going to yet-another-damned-playground. Hey, there’s sailing! I don’t sail, really, but that’s kind of cool. I like the idea of sailing.
(This has been an unsponsored post for an apparently cool program that I know slightly more than you about, but only because I’ve read the webpage and you haven’t. Yet. Well, I guess NOW you know as much about it as I do. Go literacy.)
