Rivanna Master Naturalist volunteers will be leading Neighborhood Nature Walks on Sundays in October and November. These hikes take place at city parks and are designed to engage the communities near those parks.
All walks will be on Sunday afternoons, and will start at 2 o’clock sharp at the upper pavilion in each park. Walks will be canceled if it is raining or snowing.
The “Nature Walks for Children” are aimed toward children from 6 to 12 years old; all children must be accompanied by an adult. The other walks are aimed toward adults and interested young people 12 and up.
