Optoutside in Highland Park

November 24, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Get Outside for Some Fun After Thanksgiving

The Friday after Thanksgiving is a great opportunity to get some fresh air, enjoy the company of others, and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Highland Park. Join us for a leisurely walk, or just chilling out, with your friends and neighbors. All are welcome and please reach out about any accommodations you might need.

We will meet in the Anna Murray Douglass Academy Parking Lot at 1:00 PM on November 24th. 

An opening circle will be followed by a leisurely meander through Highland Park’s less-traveled corners. Nature enthusiasts will be with us to share what they know about the plants, animals, and history of the park.

After the walk, we will gather for snacks and drinks at the fireplace on the grounds of the former Colgate Divinity School Campus.

This event is free but we appreciate any contribution you can make to support our work.

Reach out with questions or offers to help.
