Adults, registration required 

Join Parkland County Libraries for a nature walk as we talk books and log steps. We love books, but reading is optional. We welcome patrons that are just looking for a group to walk with! *Please note until further notice masks and distancing are required during the walk. We walk in up to -23 weather please dress for the weather.

Each month the library provides three books for walkers to pick from. You can read all of them or none of them (that’s up to you!). We strive to find a mix of books around a monthly theme that can be found as either an e-book or paper copy at your local library, but availability isn’t always guaranteed.
