What we're about
We are a network of walkers in Greater Kalamazoo and Portage. We are fitness walkers and hikers.
Kzoo Walkers and Hikers Meetup will alert you to walks, hikes, and charity walks/races on your side of town: Portage or on Kalamazoo's northside, eastside, southside, westside, and beyond.
Meetup.com helps us:
1. To connect people, create walking groups in neighborhoods, plan walking/hiking events, and encourage special interest walkers such as backpackers, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, race walkers and Nordic pole walkers to connect.
2. We want to populate this Meetup calendar with WALKS OR HIKES LEAD BY YOU and other organizations in our community. The events posted will include walks at races, charity walks and special interest foot-driven events and occasional social events for these groups.
Most events posted are organized and hosted by a local organization such as:
Chief Nooday Chapter of the North Country Trail,
Kalamazoo Nature Center, (admission fee for non-members)
Pierce Cedar Creek Institute, (admission fee for non-members and RSVP for guided events)
Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy
Gazelle Sports, and
Kalamazoo County Parks for the Kalamazoo River Valley Trail (KRVT).
Note: A few of these organizations charge an admission fee and require an RSVP on their website or by phone.
Other events are lead by volunteers who are walkers and hikers and want to share their favorite trail with you.
LEAD YOUR OWN WALK/HIKE: You may use this meetup to post an ongoing event or a one-time event on a day, time and place in our area that may attract others to join you. Notice the "Create A Hike" option on the home page and contact Bobbi Jo for assistance.
