Be Out There's Blogger Support: The Founding Mothers
Be Out There partners with many wonderful, influential bloggers to inspire families to get outside. Key to this work are The Founding Mothers
, a diverse group of women who personally understand and care deeply about the challenges and benefits of getting families outside and experiencing nature. As part of a connected community, these women advice Be Out There and help promote outdoor activities through a variety of new media networks.
Plus... they're a hilarious, warm, generous, savvy, and informative group of women!
