FSPW partners with Bonner Homeless Transitions to get kids outside.

Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness (FSPW) is partnering with Bonner Homeless Transitions for the third year in a row to promote children enjoying the great outdoors. Families with children 12 and under are invited to join FSPW and Bonner Homeless Transitions on 4 separate hikes this summer.

“This is a great opportunity for families to breathe in some fresh air, explore our beautiful area and maybe even make some new friends,” FSPW assistant program coordinator Britta Mireley notes. “Some of the kids on the hikes have never had the opportunity to go hiking and enjoy nature. I’m looking forward to seeing their worlds open up through this program.”

The hikes will be to Regal Creek Trail #556 and Morris Creek Trail #132 on June 24, the Ross Creek Cedars Nature Loop on July 15, the East Fork of Blue Creek on Aug. 5 and lastly, Big Eddy Trail #999 on Aug. 26.
