Moon Travel Guides & Hello Ranger Present: Outdoor Travel and National Parks Instagram Live Series

Introducing an Instagram Live event series sharing recommendations and local perspective on visiting parks in the United States and Canada. Every other Thursday, the founders of Hello Ranger, Brad and Matt Kirouac, will be in conversation with a Moon Travel Guides author on a variety of topics, including responsible travel, insider knowledge of the parks and local communities, and lesser-known spots around the parks.

Attendees will also be entered to win a copy of the author’s book!

About Hello Ranger:
Hello Ranger is a national parks community social application, podcast, and blog, with “community” being the key word. Our goal is to showcase and support the communities that are connected through national parks, from families and van-lifers to retirees, artists, educators, diverse groups, and those with disabilities. National parks are the rare places where we can all find common ground, and become #UnitedByNature.

As a community, we strive to highlight what makes us all unique as individuals experiencing these magnificent places, but it’s also important to spotlight how they bring us together. We do so with our national parks travel podcast and our crew of ambassadors, representing different regions, diversities, and lifestyles through stories and experiences, and we expand upon this ethos with our social community app, which brings the national parks community into the palm of your hand.

Sounds cool! Where/when is it happening?
