Summer Walk Series: Join us for group walks

The Verdant Health Commission and the City of Lynnwood are partnering to get people walking outdoors this summer, and we hope you will join us! We are working with statewide non-profit Feet First to not only get people active, but also to promote walkable communities, by leading group walks that connect and inspire the community.

These free walks provide people with an opportunity to explore their community while meeting new neighbors. Led by Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors, these walks are intended to get people moving outdoors this summer in an inviting and friendly atmosphere. No registration is required, but you can indicate your interest or review upcoming dates on Feet First’s MeetUp page.

The first walks are scheduled, and more will be added here and to Verdant’s website calendar in the coming weeks. Check back soon for more details!
