Skip the superficial.

Half of all adults spend less than 5 hours in nature each week.
What is WONDER?
That indescribable and thrilling moment when you lose all sense of time. A feeling of awe and inspiration. Something that causes you to either pick up the pace or stop dead in your tracks and take notice. And most importantly, wonder is something, once we experience it again, we want more of and want to share with others.
MINDFUL meets MOVING
Yes, walking along an unknown path with no idea of what's around the next turn can be very relaxing. Simply allowing your senses to experience the moment is healthy and freeing. And what's around the next tree is often exhilarating. When was the last time you lost all sense of time? Your team will have the the time, space and the freedom to connect to your sense of wonder again.
Remember that Human Knot activity? Me either!
While Scavenger Hunts and Murder Mystery Games have their place, those exercises often fade quickly. Ranger Ted provides you with long-lasting memories that shape life-long habits, deepen connections to others and to the bigger world outside. Sometimes mindful and sometimes raucous, an adventure with Ranger Ted makes a wonder-filled impact.
What do you notice?
By asking 'What do you notice?' Ranger Ted helps people immerse in the great outdoors. This reduces stress, builds connection and sparks wonder. By recording experiences in their own unique way, the Naturalist Journal exercise brings people to a new level of openness and creativity.
What's the elevation? How far did we hike? Is that a wild cucumber?
A Ranger Ted adventure creates challenging but realistic goals, tangible results and camaraderie in ways never imagined. By simply exploring the bigger natural world, people find that the questions can be more exciting than the answers.
