Five children hiking through the woods, carrying large walking sticks, with the warm sun glowing through the trees' green leaves. Image reads: take a hike for learning in nature.

November 17, 2022 is Give to the Max Day AND National Take a Hike Day!

Time spent in nature fosters connections. And through the wonders of the living planet, we can nurture a deeper appreciation for the ways we are connected to human life, plant life, and wildlife far beyond the reaches of our own experiences.

Your donation to Dodge will foster a lifetime of interconnectedness through the power of the natural world.

Plus, your gift will be DOUBLED thanks to matching funds from a fellow Dodge supporter!

Celebrate the day by taking a moment to unplug and reconnect with friends, family, and the nature-loving community at Dodge on a free guided trail hike. Explore the beautiful land your support helps preserve. And experience first-hand how learning in nature can be exciting, inspiring, and life changing.
