Tuesdays on the Trail: Gamer Hike at Blevins Gap

July 2 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Head outdoors on Tuesdays in June and July to discover our area’s unique biodiversity protected by Land Trust preserves!

The Expedition: Some of the most popular games today, like Fortnight, Minecraft, and Roblox, take their inspiration from nature. On this hike, we’ll explore the open world map around us- in real life. By looking for similarities between our favorite games and the inspiration found around us, we’ll figure out how and why game designers keep finding the answers outside. How many Pokemon are inspired by real-life bugs? How do designers create a perfectly natural landscape? Are there any side quests we can complete today?

Cost: FREE but only available for Land Trust members at the Trailblazer (Family) level or above. Not a Land Trust Member? Join today! 

Reservations: Land Trust members at the Trailblazer (Family) level or above only. Reservations are required. Space is limited.
