What We’ll Do

Take an interactive trip through the National Parks without leaving your home!

In this guided science adventure by Atlas Obscura trip leaders and co-authors Maygen Keller and Emily Hoff (Scenic Science of the National Parks), attendees will vote on which three of six national parks we will explore. This month’s theme: deserts! How do plants and animals survive in extremely dry conditions? How do deserts form anyway? Join us on this one-of-a-kind journey and help blaze the trail.

Attendees will help pick which parks and storylines we explore and enjoy gorgeous photographs and incredible stories of science along the way, so join us on this one-of-a-kind journey and help blaze our trail.

Where We’ll Be
