Discover Your Parks is a series of free hikes at different parks in Washoe County. The walks all start at 7 p.m. The tours last between one and two hours and are open to everyone. Distances are different for each walk and vary from .5 to 1.5 miles. Wear sturdy shoes, bring some water, and an extra layer of clothing in case the weather cools off in the evening. For more information, call (775) 453-0698.
Each walk in the series is at a different park and will acquaint participants with the unique and varied ecology and history of parks in our area. The series is being conducted by the Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation in cooperation with Washoe County Parks and Open Space.
