shape the environment around us. Come join us for a day of

removing Invasive Bush Honeysuckle, which restrains native

plants from growing and providing resources like food and

shelter. Participants under 16 years old must be accompanied

A WALK

WITH NATURE

Most of us have

pretty active lives.

We are constantly

searching for ways to find

more time to fit in all we want

to accomplish, and that may mean

cutting out something we really enjoy.

What if there was a way to team up an

exercise routine with a bit of nature “along

the way?” Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s

On the Trail to Fitness class was developed to get

people moving and enjoying the outdoors in a way that

combines walking and fitness exercises.

Monica Cannaley has been a weekly participant in the class

since 2014. She quickly professes she has never enjoyed exercising

in a gym setting and was searching for a class or activity that combined

the two things she loves most: Walking and the outdoors. When she ran

across the On the Trail class description in the Program Guide, she was sold.

“I love the way we keep things moving and use what is in nature to build upper

and lower body strength which is incorporated into every class. Sometimes we use

fences, benches, stones to step up on or we use them for push-ups,” shares Cannaley.

“I’ve met some great friends during the walks as well and that just completes the mind/

body/spirit connection for me.”

More stories like Monica’s will hit your mailbox this fall in our new issue of Park Conversations!
