With the combination of these two skill sets, he develops fun, engaging, challenging and rewarding programs for adults and youth alike. Since 2008, Jason has been leading young people into a better experience in the woods, using a combination of story telling, science education and adventure to instill a deep love of nature – and a desire to preserve it – in children.
