“We Love Nature!”, First “Second Sunday Nature Walk” – Ouabache Trails Park

February 14, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 5:00 pm

We are excited to announce the first 2021 “Second Sunday Nature Walk” has been scheduled for February 14. It’s Valentine’s Day, and during “We Love Nature!” we are starting the series with a simple exploration that celebrates our love of the natural world. We will be wandering the trails, keeping an eye out for heart shapes in anything, and sharing what we find! What makes the shape? How was it formed? You might also enjoy doing a “photo journal” of this walk! Feel free to bring family and friends to enjoy the beautiful natural environment of this unique county park! Participants will meet in front of Ouabache Trails Park Office. *This walk includes some steep slopes and includes Trails 1, 2, and 4.

  • All walks occur on the second Sunday of each month, start at 2:00 pm Eastern, usually last 1 – 1.5 hours, and held rain, snow or shine, but not in severe weather! The meeting places change according to what trails will be used that day. The walks are held free of charge, no registration is required, all ages are welcome and families encouraged to participate.
  • This year we will be exploring various ways to be observant with emphasis on exploration and discovery. We will also be exploring ways that different parts of an ecosystem are connected.
  • Please be aware that some walks involve steep slopes or wet places, and dress accordingly. Trails vary from easy to moderate to rugged; the description of each walk includes the conditions.
  • The walks are provided by Independent Naturalist Terri Talarek King. Any questions can be emailed to her at leapingfrog55@yahoo.com , or leave a voice message (no text) at 812-881-8987.
  • Each walk is announced via local media. Also, interested persons are encouraged to join the Facebook page, The Nature of Knox County, Indiana.
  • Note on COVID-19 restrictions: The walk leader takes the Coronavirus very seriously. Until the situation becomes much safer, interpretive methods will be used for facilitating social distancing while exploring and learning. All attendees are strongly advised to wear masks for the protection of themselves and others. Future walks are tentative and will operate on a “wait-and-see” basis, but the walk leader remains optimistic!
