About this Event

WisCorps and Women of the Wild Midwest are teaming up with the Outdoor Journal Tour and its #wehiketoheal2019 campaign. Women of the Wild Midwest co-founder Andrea Frisch C.T.R.S. and Steph Hanna, WisCorps Environmental Education Manager will lead one of the dozens of group hikes worldwide to celebrate #WeHiketoHeal2019 on Saturday, March 30 at 10:00 a.m. in Myrick Park and Marsh.

The hike will be for people of all abilities and will include nature-based yoga and mindfulness activities. The group will meet at the Gun Club Shelter in Myrick Park. Please bring plenty of water and dress for the weather (which could be a foot of snow or 80 degrees and sunny... it's Wisconsin!). The hike length will be dependent on trail conditions and marsh water levels. No hiker will be left behind!

This event is free and open to the public - please register so we have an approximate guest count.

If you need accommodations, please let us know. We will make adjustments to our trail choice and plan to be more inclusive of your needs. The WisCorps Action Trackchair will be available to anyone with a mobility impairment.

#wehiketoheal is a month-long women's empowerment and wellness campaign. Each week throughout the month, registrants receive mindfulness resources that encourage introspection. The experience culminates with group (and individual) hikes all over the world—on the same day. #wehiketoheal’s goal is to create a healing environment of gratitude and connection for women…everywhere.
