The Office of Arid Lands Studies & Geospatial Extension love this article! Ironwood Tree Experience is a wonderful partner to work with because of their great energy and dedication to getting youth outdoors. It is our hope that by using geospatial technologies like GPS, GIS and Online Mapping in youth programs like ITE that kids will get outside more, learn more about nature and their communities, and share more of that information with their friends and families. Our Stealth Health project here at UA is working do that with ITE and other youth groups in Tucson, not with the GPS in a GPS, but a GPS in a cell phone! Keep your eyes open for youth running around Tucson and the surrounding mountain ranges mapping the outdoors :)
Thanks again, this is an awesome article!
