It's that time of year again. The leaves have fallen, the year is coming to an end, and we have wrapped up on 2019's monthly trail packet subscriptions.
We are very proud of the hand-on material we created for families who subscribed with us this year! Monthly Subscriptions have been a core part of our business ever since we began Super Nature Adventures.
The year 2020 will mark the fourth year that we send these packets out to families here in the Portland area.
In this blog post, we share all the features that will make the 2020 subscriptions an awesome way to explore the outdoors with your little ones!
So without further ado, here are SIX key things to know about 2020 subscriptions.
1. Monthly subscriptions are a great holiday gift for kids because they are the kind of gift that keeps on giving all year round.
When you sign up for a year-long subscription, you receive a new packet delivered straight to your door every single month from February through November.
That’s ten unique packets with hands-on booklets and craft activities that are seasonally specific, each with a kid-centered map and sticker set designed to empower kids to feel like the heroes of their own hike.
That’s ten different family adventures around the Portland area that will help deepen your child’s connections to the outdoors!
2. The 2020 subscriptions will include all kinds of great material to encourage exploration of nature, science, creativity, and the imagination…and help parents and grandparents explore the trails with their kids!
Each year, we’ve worked to improve our hand-illustrated packet designs to make them better than ever, and this year is no different. Each packet in 2020 will include:
3. The 2020 subscriptions will feature some pretty awesome locations…and some pretty awesome natural wonders too!
This year we are revisiting some of our very favorite locations in and around Portland, including some of the very first trails that we created trail packets for years ago.
We are so excited to go back and redesign these packets with new features!
Subscribers next year will explore the trilliums in Tryon Creek State Park in the spring time. They’ll go on a hunt for butterflies and ladybugs at Powell Butte over the summer. They’ll learn about the vibrant fall foliage that makes historic Laurelhurst Park so special in the Fall.
To learn all about the locations, head on over to our three part series on 2020 subscriptions.
4. The 2020 trail packets will only be available to those who sign up for a subscription.
If you’ve been following us for a while, you are probably aware that some of the trail packets we’ve made for subscribers have later become available to the wider public. This year officially marks the end of that practice.
This means you must be a subscriber in order to receive any of the newest packets that we create over the coming year.
Don’t want to commit to an entire year? You don’t have to. :) At any time you can sign up for a single month, so long as you meet our sign up deadlines for that month's packet.
5. We will still be offering all our other great benefits for subscribers.
Did you know that subscribers automatically get 20% off for any of our older trail packets available at the online store?
They also have access to other kinds of exclusive material…like the Forest Park packet and the Orenco Woods Packet, both sent out to subscribers in 2019.
6. During the holiday 2019 season, you can choose between a recurring subscription and a holiday gift subscription option that does not auto-renew.
The gift subscription options include a gift card…or more!
Want to make your gift subscription special? We have all kinds of options available for you. You can get a basic subscription, and Adventure Edition, or Super Nature Hero Edition with lots of fun extras!
Once you order, we ship out a gift card that arrives through the mail for your kiddo(s). Any additional material ordered at that time will also be packaged and shipped your way. Have a special message request? You can add a comment to your order or email us and we'll add it in. :)
These options will only be available throughout the holiday season, so now is the time to take advantage of them.
