I am again offering in-person, traditional walks, with COVID mitigations in place. At this time, the in-person walks are limited to a small number of participants, but that will change (increase) as it feels/is safe to do so. These in-person walks are held in all kinds of outdoor spaces - primarily in Gatlinburg, Knoxville, Townsend, as well as surrounding parks and areas.
To honor the power of the virtual experience and the fact that some people do not have a guide close by and also my draw to bring people together out in nature, my intention is to offer in-person and virtual walk opportunities each month. Virtual walks can be experienced from wherever you are.
I am changing up the model of how I schedule walks. I am looking to build partnerships with groups, locations, and organizations that would be interested in having me guide walks for them, their staff, clients or group members. The specifics about those walk offerings will be designed around each particular walk event and the walk dates for these will not be shared publicly.
You can request a private/group walk, talk, partnership or presentation with
In addition, I will continue to offer other free walks to individuals and families that would be interested in a guided walk in the woods. I will offer one open walk event per month. If you are interested in the upcoming dates, further information or to sign up for one of these free walks, use the form below to contact me. Due to the fact that Nature's gifts are free and available to all, I will offer these free events in the mix of my offerings.
