    • When Tommy hiked the PCT in 2018 he became well known for his photography series “Hikertrash Vogue” which made even the dirtiest and foulest of us thru-hikers look elegant, beautiful and alluring. In his new project, called 100 Humans of the Outdoors his goal is to not just show the diversity in people who love the outdoors, but show the beautifully unique ways these people connect to Mother Nature, protect outdoor spaces, find belonging and create community for others.

    • We are changing registration systems to streamline the process. Register directly through the Intentional Hiking website.

  • December 20: Matt "Sheriff Woody" Berger - Botany on the Trail - The Joy of Plant Identification

    • Matt is a botanist and describes himself as a biodiversity fanatic. He is also a triple crown hiker with over 12,700 miles hiked. Last year he explored just about every state west of the Mississippi and much of the Southeast in search of botanical treasures. I’m excited to discuss plants, learning how to identify botanical treasures on trail, and making the time while hiking to collect observations.
