Did you know? Spending time in nature can

  • Lead to better relationship skills and reduced stress, anger, and aggression.
  • Help increase focus and impulse control and reduce hyperactivity.
  • Boost intellectual performance, creativity, and critical thinking. (Source: Children and Nature Network research library, 2017).

Join us for weekly nature walks around the Redeemer Classical School neighborhood and in Fort Wayne’s fabulous parks. Walks are guided and open, free, to the public. We walk on Fridays starting at 1 p.m. unless otherwise specified. Participants must sign a liability waiver form. To save time you may print it, complete it, and bring with you the first time you join us, or we will provide copies on-site.

To receive text reminders and notifications of last-minute changes, such as due to weather, text @redeemercl to 81010. If that doesn’t work on your phone, text @redeemercl to (347) 983-9822.

Suggested carry-alongs: Insect repellant, sturdy shoes, colored pencils, weather-suitable clothes, nature journal/sketchpad, magnifying glass or binoculars, water, snacks. Strollers and baby carriers also welcome—all walks will be baby accessible.
