Timucuan Parks Foundation and AARP are partnering for Healthy Living: Fresh Air, Fitness, Friendship and Fun, a series of free monthly walks this spring in Jacksonville’s nature preserves, historical sites and downtown attractions.
Healthy Living: The Art of our Wilderness Parks, will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 19 at the Museum of Science and History at 1025 Museum Circle on the Southbank. Participants will start the day at Timucuan Parks Foundation’s 20th Anniversary Exhibition at MOSH where artist Kathy Stark will guide everyone through the paintings, photography, video and displays that highlight the area’s national, state and city parks and preserves and the sense of place and well-being they provide. Following the walk through the exhibit, participants will take a 1.2-mile walk along the St. Johns River on the paved Riverwalk. Admission into MOSH is free for participants but registration is required which can be done at timucuanparks.org/healthy-living.
