Are you interested in creating a deeper, stronger connection to nature? Join Ranger Kevin to find out how. Click program title for more details.
Join Ranger Kevin as we learn how to make - or strengthen - our connection with nature through the practice of Silent Walking and Sit Spots. This is a beginner’s level class, so anyone who is interested in cultivating the skills needed to appreciate the natural world in greater depth is welcome. We will learn to relax, change our mindset, and allow our senses to unlock a closer and clearer experience of the Sonoran Desert. This program includes a short, 10-15-minute walk on the Yavapai trail, which is rated easy, with very little loose rock, uneven terrain and elevation change. Please wear closed-toe shoes, and bring water. Hats and sunscreen are recommended. Restrooms and water are available at the trailhead. Please, NO pets.
MEETING LOCATION: Cottonwood Day Use Area/Trailhead, accessed from the North Entrance. If the parking lot by the restrooms is full, you can park in the picnic area parking nearby. See park map here: https://www.maricopacountyparks.net/assets/1/6/lake-pleasant-8x111.pdf
