I bet you need a few more gifts for your outdoor friends, hikers and A.T. dreamers. Here’s an idea:
The Appalachian Trail Game is a fun new board game for the whole family that teaches you how to prepare for your own hiking adventure. Emergency Cards, Gear Cards, Bonus Cards, Plant and Animal ID Cards
The designers of the game write:
As educators, conservationists, and hikers, we designed this game as a fun and engaging way to educate kids (of all ages) about the Appalachian Trail and get them excited and prepared for their own outdoor adventure. The game also serves to shed light on the spirit of volunteerism and the trail maintaining clubs and communities which serve as good friends and neighbors to the trail. Other topics of inquiry include Plant and Animal ID; Backpacking Skills, First Aid, essential hiking/backpacking items, low impact Camping, and A.T. Trivia. It’s perfect for families, classrooms, and Scouts, and can be played indoors or out on the trail.
