SPRING Outdoors!

Walkers, Hikers, TLGV partners & members – Spring Outdoors happened – click for brochure to see what we enjoyed!


Spring Outdoors happened from the Spring Equinox on March 20 until the Summer Solstice on June 21.  Spring Outdoors connected you to lands, waters, trails, stories and places in The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor, including some properties not normally accessible to the public.

Walktober gives you tons of guided experiences in the fall!
