Nature Walks

Summer 2019 Nature Walk Series

Enjoy the physical and mental health benefits of walking in our city’s natural environment. Join the CMA for a Nature Walk to experience outdoor movement. With exciting themes including Outdoor Play, Nature Appreciation, and Dance, there is something for everyone!

Walks happen on the second Saturday of each month. Led by certified Naturalist Nina Sampson and movement leader Jillian Welsh, we will explore trails throughout London.

Our nature walks are FREE, family friendly, and all bodies are welcome. Some walks are more accessible for strollers and mobility devices. 

Note: the unpaved trails used in some walks will not accommodate mobility assistance devices, including strollers. Please see individual walk descriptions below for information on accessibility.
