The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Get out and get moving! We just wrapped up our annual “Woods Walk” challenge, and whether you hiked all 10 highlighted trails, just a few or none at all, you are welcome to celebrate this awesome program. Join us at the Hickory Creek Junction picnic shelter for celebratory doughnuts and drinks and meet fellow “Woods Walk” enthusiasts, share your hiking experiences and learn more about this annual program.

Drop in anytime between 9 and 11 a.m. to have a tasty treat and hang out. Our celebration is conveniently in a preserve featuring a “Woods Walk” trail, and maps will be available should you want to check out the trail on your own after stopping by the picnic shelter.

Event Requirements

No registration required.

This program takes place entirely outdoors. Please dress for the weather.

The picnic shelter is accessible. The trail is paved over natural surfaces and uneven terrain. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this workday should mention their request when registering, or submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the workday.
