Portland Family Outdoors

Portland Family Outdoors was a bi-weekly column I wrote for Craigmore Creations, a local production house that specializes in creating natural history entertainment. The focus of the column was outdoor family friendly adventures within a 2-hour drive of Portland. Unfortunately, the articles are no longer active and available, but these are the topics I covered.
