(Note: The Tuesday Nov 5th Wellness Walk is the final scheduled walk of the season.)
All morning walks begin at 8am on Tuesdays. Walks are held at a nearby Lake County Forest Preserve (different each week), or other walkable venue. Distances are modest (usually less than two miles), and routes are planned to return us to the starting point in approx 45 minutes. Any of these walks may be shortened or cancelled if the weather poses a safety risk.
If you need more info, please contact Melanie Fuhrmann at 847-703-0890 or Ken Church at 847-651-1940. In case of inclement weather, please check the Saint Stephen of Antioch Facebook Page or contact Melanie or Ken.
You can see Lake County Forest Preserve maps online at www.lcfpd.org/preserves. This takes you to an interactive mapping system. The old print maps (.pdf) are within the internal menus, but they can more easily be found with a Google search. LCFPD also has a smartphone app. Questions: Call Melanie Fuhrmann at 847-703-0890 or Ken Church at 847-651-1940. Any of these walks may be shortened or cancelled if the weather poses a safety risk.
