Adventures and Workshops

Friday, February 21; 11 am - 12:30 pm; Meet at The Ray at 10:55 am and bring your walking shoes!
Did you know that one of the best ways to clear your mind, stimulate your brain, and improve your fitness is to walk? Did you know that even spending 10 minutes outside, especially in natural areas among trees, has been found to improve your sense of well-being? Yep, we have the answer to all that! Grab a friend (or come alone to meet new ones) and join us for a 2.5 mile round trip walk to the Lincoln Park Conservatory (free entry!). You'll be so happy you did!

Free to DePaul students; All effort and participation is voluntary; Pre-registration not required but requested.
