Natural Highways

 

Our Mission

Natural Highways is a startup non-profit organization that strives to motivate and organize opportunities for students to explore the outdoors.

 

Our services include weekly organized bike rides and hikes, as well as weekly articles published to our blog, The Trail Mix.

Why? 

 

In the past 4 years, the average screen time has doubled.

 

Most teenagers spend more than 7 hours on screens daily, not including homework. In contrast, the average student only spends 4-7 minutes outdoors every day. 

Often times, binge watching TV series or playing hours of videogames is met with disappointment and guilt. 

The solution is to go outside. Having a bike around your neighborhood or even taking a brief walk decreases anxiety and has even been proven to increase self esteem. 

All in all, approaching a mundane task with a fresh mindset boosts efficiency and creates a positive attitude.
