Saint Mary-of-the-Woods Fall Nature Walk Saturday

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, a ministry of the Sisters of Providence, will host its annual Fall Nature Walk Saturday, Oct. 27, at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods.

The trail offers visitors an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of autumn as a transitional season toward the winter months. Participants will take a leisurely walk through the woods, admiring some of the flora and fauna that can be seen along the way. The terrain is gentle, but good walking shoes are suggested. There is no fee for participation.

The walk begins at the trail head at 10 a.m. and will last about one hour. Participants are asked to meet at the entrance of the Nature Trail near St. Joseph Lake and the straw bale retreat house. For more information, contact Candace Hack, environmental education coordinator at White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, at chack@spsmw.org or 812-535-2935.
