Hike With Us

The Wild Life is working in partnership with HIKEHoppers, a central-MN based non-profit organization whose vision is to connect "people to nature through hiking events, educational learning experiences, and wellness services, in order to support healthier and happier communities."

On the second Saturday of each month, you can join experienced naturalist, nature nerd, and creator/host of The Wild Life, Devon Bowker (@devonthenatureguy), on a series of themed hiking adventures focused on forging connections with, and learning about, the natural world around you. On these hikes, you'll discover the social network of trees, nocturnal life, what wild lives are doing as the season's change, and how you can become a master birder---even in the dead of winter! Of course, any other questions or curiosities you have along the way are fair game, too!

On occasion, resident hiking expert and tip guru, Chelsea Bowker (@teacherwhohikes) will also be tagging along!

Here is a list of hikes scheduled for the remainder of the year. All hikes are at Stearns County, MN parks.
