The Discover Nature App – First Time in Kentucky


Evan Hirsche and Sam Serebin, co-founders of Discover Nature Apps, have visited Mahr Park and have shared their expertise for a first-time Kentucky Nature App. Both Evan and Sam were recommended to Producer Sam Koltinsky because of their success at the Jay N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge. The intent would be to design an app that would connect all age groups to nature, land, leadership, and legacies.

The Discover Nature Apps is a joint venture of Evan Hirsche and Sam Serebin that seeks to connect families to the outdoors in ways that are fun and engaging and which ultimately lead to taking meaningful action in support of protecting our public lands.
