Enjoy the Chadakoin River Walk system’s newest asset, a mile-long easily walkable and bikeable path along the river, in the company of expert nature guides. Join us to explore the city’s biological diversity that once inspired one of the world’s greatest naturalists, Roger Tory Peterson, learn about ongoing environmental conservation and education efforts, and be amazed!
All walks will take place on the new River walk bike path on Wednesdays from 9:00-10:00am.
