A bit about our Dementia Friendly Nature Walks
Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation, in cooperation with our partners at Dementia Friendly Washoe County and the Sanford Center for Aging is offering a free, weekly series of interpretive walks specifically designed for individuals living with dementia and their care partners.
The walks are an extension of the Discover Your Parks program, the goal of which is to get community members outdoors exploring and stewarding our local parks. These walks will give participants an opportunity to connect to the natural world through an experiential exploration of seasonal change along the Truckee River in Idlewild Park. The walks focus on the seasonal change of plant and animal life (i.e first bud burst of target plants, the first sighting of a specific bird, first leaf fall of the season, etc.).
* Participants should be accompanied by a care partner
Mark Your Calendar!
Walks are held every Tuesday at 10:00 am.
Please show up at 9:45 in order to begin our walks at 10:00 am.
Each walk will begin and end at the Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation office in Idlewild Park. These walks are free and open to the public.
We hope to see you there!
