Explore. Go on an adventure. Get outside. Push yourself. As nature enthusiasts it's always our goal to open our minds, eyes, and ears to all that this great big world of ours has to offer. And that's what this month's newsletter is all about.
Pushing yourself is all about doing new things, like going on your first camping trip, going for a bike ride on new terrain, getting the family to spend more time outside, take part in Otkoberfest celebrations or even gaze at the stars! It's also about surprising yourself. Learn that you can cook a hearty meal just in one pot over a camping stove. You may also be surprised to find out that Philadelphia has the oldest zoo in the United States, and the world's first penitentiary!
Whatever it is you've been yearning to do, go for it! You just might be surprised about what you learn.
