Guide: My name is Nick Barlow, Outdoor Education Director at the YMCA of Ithaca and
Tompkins County. I was born in Japan, lived in Washington DC, Hilo Hawaii, CNY,
Philadelphia PA, and then I moved back here in 2017. Moving around when I was
young gave me the opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty of what our planet has to
offer. Because I moved a lot I wanted to help educate our community about the
importance of exploring what nature has to offer, learning about the history of our planet
at a local level area to a global level, and the health benefits of both physical and mental
of being outside.
