This hike will be at a slow to moderate pace through the woods with period stops for quiet reflection and connection with our senses. Co-led by Parks Naturalist Elle Bogle and Julie Woodward of Mindful City Ann Arbor. Please bring a mask, wearing a base layer is recommended, and bring a mug for optional hot tea at the end of the hike. This hike is limited to 10 people and pre-registration is required.
