Hiking Humboldt Kids by Rees Hughes

Friday, June 9 at 6 p.m. we welcome Rees Hughes, along with Jennifer Gonzales, to present their new book, Hiking Humboldt Kids.

Built for use with kids, this book will inspire family adventures with authentic experiences in nature that develop wonder in children and adults alike. Research shows us that these shared experiences in early childhood have valuable and long-lasting positive effects on our health and well being.

Rees Hughes walked his way through some of the most stunning regions on Earth — from the top of Kilimanjaro to the arid interior of Australia, from the pilgrimage route up Sri Pada in Sri Lanka to the picturesque Cornish coast, from the Himalayas to the Andes — but has found little that compares with the magic of the Klamath Knot. Co-editor of The Pacific Crest Trailside Readers,  Rees is currently working on a guide to Humboldt County walks, serves as a volunteer trail steward coordinator, and an advocate for the Humboldt Bay Trail.

Rees retired from a career in higher education after more than three decades at Humboldt State University, Seattle University, and the University of Kansas.  He has a PhD from the University of Washington.
