Outside Influence is published by Bob Bahlmann, the Executive Director of an outdoor education non-profit called Explore the Outdoors. 

There is an unfortunate move away from spending time in the outdoors. It is our hope that these postings will reawaken your interest in the wonderful natural world around us.

Our goal is not to preserve nature by keeping you away from it, but to help you learn how to enjoy nature in a safe and responsible way.

Please join us as we Explore the Outdoors.
