May 21, 2022 @ 9:00 am

We invite your kids to join us for a two hour program where special guest Ryan Benz takes them through an unforgettable journey, sharing his story of hiking 2,189.8 miles along the Appalachian Trail in a fun, engaging, and inspiring way.

He’ll talk about the hike itself—what it was like to be stuck in the rain for days, and coming face-to-face with rattlesnakes, bears, and even wild ponies!

But he’ll do something more important—inviting the kids to navigate the path with him, taking advantage of the healing powers of nature, and using mindfulness to find the resilience to overcome life’s challenges, both on and off the trail.

Get ready for a wild journey and help your kids stretch to the place beyond their comfort zone!

After the presentation, Ryan will guide the group on a short journey into nature on the Berk’s Nature grounds—coming together in a sharing circle to discuss our connection to nature and the important role it plays in our lives.

For ages 6-14. We’ll spend the day exploring the surrounding park, taking hikes, doing scientific experiments and measurements, among other hands-on activities in and outside of the classroom! Pack a lunch to enjoy as a picnic or in our classroom.
