Videos: A Breath of Fresh Air with TAPS Outdoors - Breathing in the New Year

Author: TAPS Media


This month's theme: Breathing In the New Year

This theme runs from January 6, 2021 to February 2, 2021.

This transition into a new year is one that will be welcomed but will require new tools to navigate. As many of us have experienced in our grief, this year of great loss and challenge can also give way to new life and hope. In this month we will forge new paths together in our hearts and set foot on trails we've yet to see. Together, we will explore the wild.
