Walking in the outdoors provides a different way of expressing, exploring, and sharing in grief. If you are someone who is grieving, find that walking in nature at a relaxed pace is therapeutic, and value conversations with others to explore your grief, this group may be for you. Grab your water bottle, put your walking shoes on and join other adults of all fitness levels on a pleasant walk. Open to all adults, led by AHS volunteers.
