Come join the Nature Connections program on a guided hike through the La Crosse River Conservancy on the evening of Wednesday, May 03. The hike will be led by UW-Extension Forester, Randy Mell, along with La Crosse County’s Health Educator, Megan Muehlenbruch. This will be the first of five guided area hikes this summer.

Quick Nature Connection Fact: Spending time amongst nature has been demonstrated to improve attention and positive mood, as well as reduce stress levels.

Everyone is invited, so bring your family, friends and co-workers along. Full details are as follows:
