Sunday May 5 10:30 – 11:00 PM – Outdoors writer and blogger Aislinn Sardnaki

Aislinn’s enthusiasm for the outdoors started at a young age, in the woods of Winterport, Maine, where she would collect bugs and chase after wild turkeys. For years, her extended family has taken annual trips to Baxter State Park to hike and camp which was where her passion for hiking was born. While working at an outfitter in Bangor, she became a gearhead and learned more about being active in the outdoors from experienced thru-hikers, paddlers, bird watchers and climbers. While studying journalism at the University of Maine, she completed an Honors College thesis on hiking, a yearlong project about Maine trails and how being active in the environment has a positive impact on a person’s health. All of this has lead to a successful career as an outdoors reporter for the Bangor Daily News, author of the hiking blog Act Out With Aislinn and producer of the online video series 1-minute Hikes.
