Our guide for this inaugural interview episode is Alicia Heyburn.
Alicia’s guiding cred ranges both broad and deep - she’s a registered Maine sea kayak guide, a wilderness first responder, long-distance bikepacker, and co-leader of an amazing outing club for Maine women, all of which we talk about in this episode.
Alicia shares some great ideas for easing into new activities at any age, and as a solo female adventurer; she shares her theories on nature deficit disorder; and we talk about the roles that curiosity and science can play in moving past fear.
As she says, "the door to the outdoors will swing open to you at any age". So let's open the door and welcome Alicia Heyburn to the Guides Gone Wild podcast.
You can connect with Alicia directly through the Teens To Trails website, or @TeensToTrails on Facebook and Instagram.
