“Peo­ple love be­ing out in the woods at night and they can do it in a group set­ting where it’s less scary,” Jones says.

There’s also “Ba­bies in Back­packs,” where moms can bring their lit­tle ones on na­ture hikes; a bee keep­ing class, jew­elry mak­ing with all nat­u­ral ma­teri- als, pad­dling classes and an en­tire hik­ing se­ries de­voted to women, to name just a few.

“It’s not al­ways pre­dictable, but if you know what to look for, you’ll al­ways find some­thing,” she says.
