Walks for active adults ages 55+
Take a deeper dive into a topic of interest that may focus on natural features of a park, tell the story of cultural connections to place, or weave both elements together. You can expect these themed walks to last one hour or less, cover less distance on a trail and provide a new perspective on how you experience that special place.
Learning to ask the right kinds of questions can help us tune ourselves to nature and enhance our experiences. Join a naturalist for a 30-minute walk to develop some common observational skills and questions to cultivate your curiosity.
Rosy Mound Walk
Once planted to reforest areas after the devastation of fires, lumbering and agriculture, then forgotten, red pine plantations quietly deceive us into thinking they are a natural forest. Join a naturalist for an hour walk to discover the history of red pines in west Michigan and their role in our ecosystem moving forward.
Active adults 55+ years can take a deeper dive into a topic of interest that may focus on natural features of a park, tell the story of cultural connections to place or weave both elements together. You can expect these themed walks to last one hour, take place in parks with more accessible trails and provide an opportunity to connect with other curious active adults while learning a little more about these special places.
