Take a Walk in the Park Day
This monday, where will your walk take you? During this Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak please stay well and healthy and follow protocols set by City of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Health and Health Canada in regards to the Coronavirus. Best wishes to you all.
When the Coronavirus has passed by, there are times for explorations. Will you walk your dog in the South West Off Leash Recreation Area? Or perhaps you may wish to walk and explore the east side the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area getting ready to see the small yellow lady’s slipper, a provincially endangered species? Maybe you would rather have a walk, and discover some plant and animals sightings for iNaturalist on your smart phone. Another option would be to take a walk around George Genereux Urban Regional Park.
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
There is so much to discover. One monday is just not enough. Take a Walk in the Park Day will just get you started. Celebrate your New Year’s resolutions today, and pop around to the afforestation areas, and do take a walk in a park when you feel that you are safe from the Coronavirus protocols which have been set into place!
“Besides water, trees provide pure air. They are the great filtering machines for the human organism. They improve and transform the air in a way which is most favorable and most acceptable to the lungs of man.”…~Richard St. Barbe Baker
