"The purpose of my work and this website is to inspire people to get closer to nature "as a fountain of life". Which Way is North, our 2017 initiative, will celebrate America's natural places and is a call to action to work together to bring underserved and diverse communities closer to nature." John Colver
I've been privilaged to work with people of all walks of life, all ages and from around the world - creating programs, adventures and expeditions designed to fill our bodies, minds and souls with the remarkable and endless benefits that nature has to offer. I'm grateful for you stopping by this site and I hope to see you outside in a park, on a trail or maybe a mountain top!
