Senior Walks

Fells Senior Walks Seek Volunteer Hike Leaders

In 2013, the Friends of the Fells initiated a series of Senior Walks sponsored by a regional Community Health Improvement grant. These specially designed walks provided a unique opportunity for interested seniors to enjoy the physical, mental, and social benefits of walking through the Fells with leaders knowledgeable about the ecology and history of the area.

The program proved that although walkers may move at different speeds, all can actively experience the beauty of the Fells. Because these walks were so enjoyed, the Friends of the Fells wishes to continue these Senior Walks on a regular basis– perhaps in time for an exploration of early spring flowers.

We are seeking a dedicated volunteer (or group of volunteers) to help lead us these much-loved hikes.  Knowledge of trails in the Fells, a familiarity with ecology, botany, or other natural sciences a plus; great social skills are a necessity!  Please contact volunteer@fells.org if you would like to step up and step out!

Thank you!
