I spent the last week researching online communities for outdoor parents, something I haven't been able to find much of in the past. Almost all of the online forums for different sports have no specific section for kids or families, which is very disappointing because I know there are so many of us out there.
But then I discovered all the great groups on Facebook, joined a few, and was inspired by all the posts of parents doing awesome things with their kids.
Here is the complete list of what I found, also located in the Online Communities page on our site. I hope some of these groups also inspire you to get out there with your kids!
For this week instead of a new advice page we have a big update to our Books page. It is divided out by topic and includes links to every book on there.
This new redesign also highlights books featuring diverse characters (highlighted with a ★) and gives us room to add in links to reviews (either by us or by other outdoor parenting bloggers).
Going forwards the goal is to get a review by an outdoor parent for every book on the page,
If you have any suggestions on books we're missing, add them in the comments or contact us - we'd love to grow this list even longer!
