Walk in the Park!

Date: Tuesdays and Thursdays from July 9 through August 29
Time: 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM
Place: Varies – see below

Join us on the trails for one or more of our 8 weeks of walking – where history and nature merge! Walk for your well-being, enjoying this beautiful park with others while learning about our heritage and the natural resources in the area you will be walking. Walks are on the paved or small crushed stone Heritage Trail, beautiful natural trails, and a few country backroads in Port Oneida. Bring walking shoes and water bottles. Everyone is welcome, so bring a friend, or meet a neighbor!

HERITAGE WALKERS – Historic Sleeping Bear has partnered with local walking guru Pete Edwards of SKIWALKING.COM and the American Nordic Walking System to bring his knowledge and enthusiasm of walking and the natural areas. He will loan Nordic ski walking poles to anyone who wants to try them and enjoy the benefits! Bonus: Get fit for the Port Oneida Run/Walk, August 3rd. Each time you walk, your name will be entered into a drawing on August 1st to get a free registration for the run/walk.

WALK IN THE PARK – Friends of Sleeping Bear have partnered with a state-wide program called Walk Michigan focused on increasing physical activity to help obtain healthy weights, reduce chronic medical conditions as well as improve mental health and reduce stress. Bonus: Pedometers will be provided.

This program is part of a state-wide program called Walk Michigan. Parks and trails play a key role in increasing physical activity, which helps prevent obesity and reduce the incidence of chronic medical conditions. It has also been shown to improve mental health and reduce stress.

Walks will be held Tuesday and Thursday at 10 AM starting July 9 through August 29.
