  • Bring a guest for only $5!


Join experienced naturalist and nature nerd, Devon Bowker, on a series of hiking adventures focused on forging connections with, and learning about, the natural world around you. On these hikes, you’ll discover hidden creatures, tiny treasures, and countless curiosities! Of course, any other questions or wonders you have along the way are fair game, too!

Devon is also the creator and host of The Wild Life (, a science & nature podcast aimed at breaking down barriers of exclusion to make the outdoors & science itself a more inclusive, safe, & accessible place. The Wild Life can be found wherever you get your podcasts! If you’d like to keep up to date with Devon, you can follow him on Instagram @devonthenatureguy or on Twitter @thewildlifepod.
