Hikerfest! 2021

Join us Saturday, Oct. 16, 6-9 p.m. for our Hikerfest! 2021.
Register for attending in-person OR
Register for attending virtually on Zoom.

We have really missed seeing you hikers out on the trail and cannot wait to connect with you again at this year’s Hikerfest. Join us for an evening of friends and fun. We will be coming to you IN-PERSON and virtually, so grab some yummy trail mix or a bowl of your favorite ice cream, sit back, and enjoy. All hikers welcome; the event is geared to girls age 11+ and adults.

This year, we are excited to present Senior Producer and Visual Story Teller Christine Lin.  We will also check in with our volunteer trip leaders to see what they have planned for us in 2022.

This year, it’s been challenging to get on the trail, but our hikers are go-getters! Have you been out hiking with your family? Discovered or investigated new species in your neighborhood? Advocated for an endangered species? Want to be an active part of the party? Email any of the following by Thursday, Sept. 30:
