IditaNature is just around the corner - it starts Saturday, March 5, just like the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race! Challenge your kids, family, friends, or students to spend as many minutes outside as the Iditarod is long in miles...so 1,150 minutes or 17+ hours over two weeks. If they meet the challenge, the reward can be whatever you dream up. Prizes of outdoor gear or doing something fun together in nature: go out for ice cream, ski a trail and wind up with hot chocolate, go on a photo safari at sunset, visit a local sled dog kennel, build a fort in the yard, go camping, have a picnic...the possibilities are endless!
