Sunday Afternoon Nature Center Walk

Should be nice this Sunday! So it's time to get your hiking shoes on and join us at the Springfield Conservation Nature Center for a quick walk through the woods. This is an easy two-mile walk. We see deer up close nearly every time we go and sometimes turkeys!

We will meet at the trailhead, which is by the open pavilion on the east side of the parking lot. We generally do not go if it is raining, but I will post if it's cancelled at least half an hour before the start.

As always let us know what days, times and events that you would like to see happening and we will put something together. Happy Hiking!

Participation in any Take~A~Hike or meetup events is done so at your own risk, so while you are having fun out there, remember to be careful.

    This was a very fun and eclectic group! Lots of new people, and I hope everyone will come back
    because it takes awhile to get to know each other.

    Just a tip for Sunday...some people may want to hike a second loop for a total of four miles. If you want to do this, consider bringing a water bottle since the water fountains at the Nature Center are shut off during the winter.

  • Nicole D.

    My husband and I are new to the area and would love to meet some fellow outdoors lovers! So we will see you all tomorrow!
