This blog offers support, connection and guidance to help get families outside with their baby as soon as they feel ready. Geared to parents with children from birth to school age with the aim of raising a new generation of children to love the outdoors. Highly commended blog which started in July of 2013, when Founder Shanti Hodges asked her new born parent group to meet up in a park. In the first months these were casual hikes among friends. As the number of families participating grew, it became apparent that the desire to get outside was much more than Shanti expected. Through the help of an ever-increasing group of volunteers, Hike it Baby grew from a small parent group to a large community of families. In 2016 Hike it Baby filed for non-profit status.
