New!  Public Nature Walks

Feel like getting out, but not sure how, or where to go? Tired of the same old walking paths? Come out with NORDC’s Outdoors program to learn about the beautiful, natural sites in and around our city. Each week features a different walk and a topic that suits the location. Walks are easy, and never over an hour long. While anyone is welcome, they are geared toward adults.

Walks take place on Tuesdays from 12:00-1:00 pm and Thursdays from 5:30-6:30 pm


Tuesday, 10/13 and Thursday, 10/16 – Brechtel Park – Light walk, and flower pressing workshop (meet by the footbridge inside the park. Transportation provided from cutoff rec center 20 minutes before walk)

Tuesday, 10/21 and Thursday, 10/23 – Bayou St John Part I – A History (meet at the lock past Robert E. Lee. Transportation available from Gernon Brown rec center 20 minutes before walk)
