Labyrinthine Ways Peace Park plans walk

Sunday, Oct. 6, Labyrinthine Ways Peace Park will continue its discovery of nature between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. We encourage youngsters and young at heart to join in the fun of viewing nature close up. See the changes that have occurred since our last walk in September. Most of the goldenrod has gone to seed but the beautiful purple and white asters are still enticing us. Red twig dogwood is turning autumnal burgundy and the cottonwoods are shedding their yellow leaves.

We hope to extend the walk through the following months as each month offers new and interesting sights and insights to enjoy. Erase that “Nature Deficit Syndrome” and leave the electronics at home for a brief time in the great Outdoors!
