      Avery Pond Nature Walk

      Please join us for a great adventure and scenic Nature Walk in the beautiful foothills and Folsom Lake area on Wednesday, May 22, from 9:30am to 12:30pm. We will meet at WW at 9:15 am and leave at 9:30 to travel to the park.  Clients are encouraged to carpool with one another.  We will arrive at Rattlesnake Bar at 10:00 and meet in the parking lot (look for the Wellness Within logo).  For those who live close to the park, we will meet you there.  A permit is required; the self-registration fee is $12.00; the center will cover costs.

      This trail is an out-and-back style trail; there’s a slight incline the first 500 feet & then it’s mostly level walking, on dirt and duff (with occasional rocks).
      It takes about 25 minutes to reach Avery Pond from the parking lot. There are several picnic tables around the pond for sitting, or if you prefer, you can meander down to the lakeshore area; it’s a peaceful setting.  Patti Brown will be joining us to lead us in meditation.

      We will leave the park at 12:00 and return to WW at 12:30.  You are invited to “make your own” lunch (food fixings will be provided), relax, and mingle at the center.  Hope you will join us!

      Please download, sign and bring with you release of liability form.
