Lea’s Holiday Hike Challenge Group Hikes

November 13, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

It’s been such a pleasure to participate in the LCWM Holiday Hike Challenge in the past. This year, I’ve decided to open my personal hikes to the community. Let me be your guide as you embrace nature at these special locations managed by the Land Conservancy of West Michigan. There are 16 in total, so join me for one, a few, or all of them! At each hike, we will discover the preserve together, looking for the “Bow Tree,” noticing special plants along the way. I will share plant identification along with uses for food, medicine, and creative connections. Participants will leave with their picture at the “Bow Tree,” in order to enter the Challenge, and with inspiration to connect with nature in new ways. Learn more about the LCWM Holiday Hike Challenge here. Everyone is welcome on these FREE, group hikes. Registration is not required, however, since some of the Preserves are in more remote locations, it may be helpful for you to share your interest with me at Lea@JoyfulWildcrafting.com, and I will reply with my phone number for texting communication if necessary. I look forward to hiking with you! Lea Sevigny FINE PRINT: Participating in group hikes is not required to enter the Holiday Hike Challenge. No one will have an advantage of winning based on participation in group hikes. “Bow tree” species identification will not be shared at these events. Foraging is not allowed at these Preserves.
