Photos and video: Duluth children connect with nature, music

Eleven children participated in the weeklong 'Hiking in Harmony' experience, learning about streams and rivers while exploring music in natural settings around the city. Kids found everyday objects to make instruments, and found items in nature to use as instruments, according to Jean R. Perrault, co-founder of the Kako Foundation, which spearheaded the project.
