Board of Directors

There’s never been a better time to help a small organization like ours and make an impact on thousands of families getting into nature. Hike it Baby is looking for four new Board Members to fill out our Board of Directors. We are at a huge transition time where we are growing from a smaller grassroots movement to being an international organization that provides advocacy and support for families to get out into nature with their children from birth on.

This is a critical moment where a few people with a lot of passion could make a difference for us. Hike it Baby is an incredibly dynamic and diverse organization that is now in 309 cities across the US and spreading all over the world. We are looking for men and women who have skills in: technology, finance, human resources and nonprofit management. Please email us at with your resume.

Previous board experience is highly encouraged to have before applying. If you know of someone who would be a great fit, please share this with them!

Hike it Baby’s Board of Directors are elected to serve the membership in deciding policy, conducting governance, and keeping the organization effective in pursuing our key mission to help families get out into nature with birth to school age kids.

As the organizations highest governing body, the newly formed Board consists of 5 members, all of whom stand for election every 2 years. The Board meets on a regular basis. Contact the Board through
