The 2013 Family Nature Summit was a huge success! Over 350 people from all over the country met in Bar Harbor, Maine for a week of hiking, biking, kayaking, sailing, exploring, laughing, and learning.
Local ecology experts led field trips to areas around Mount Desert Island to teach about this area's unique habitats. While other groups headed offshore on various sailing vessels - from kayaks to whale watching catamarans - to learn about the sea that surrounded us. Truly an amazing week!
