Walking is a great way to stay fit, meet friends, and enjoy the outdoors! On June 2, join us for guided walks starting at 10:30 AM and 12 Noon or grab a map and venture out on your own—along the way sample delicious, healthy foods from local producers. Dogs on leashes are welcome to join the fun!
Begin at the Forest Center
