"Getting out in nature with Michelle leads to powerful discoveries and amazing breakthroughs." 

 
"I moved from Manhattan (NYC) when I was in grade school to the world-famous views and vistas in upstate New York's Catskill Mountains. It was about two hours north of the City. There, my family and neighbors helped shape and cultivate a lifelong love for the land, nature, environmental preservation, biking, hiking and motorcycling," says Michelle., whose father, a standout high school and college athlete, put his young daughter on a motorcycle at age 10 and said, "go integrate the All-Boys Riding Club. Once you do that, you can do anything." - Michelle Courtney Berry, nature lover, author

One of my greatest pleasures is coaching all ages, abilities and people from around the world as they venture into the woods at Taughannock Falls State Park in Trumansburg, NY off route 89, during one of my many monthly hikes in the "gorges" Finger Lakes Region of upstate NY.
