Uniting Communities for Nature: Safe Walk – June 25

In a world where division and violence seem to dominate the headlines, it is heartening to witness communities coming together to create safe spaces that promote unity, appreciation for nature, and a sense of belonging. Two remarkable organizations, Safe On The Shore and The Nature Conservancy, have joined forces to organize an event that combines the joys of nature, physical activity, and community connection. The Safe Walk will take place at the Brownsville Preserve on June 25 from 10 am to 12 pm.

Creating a Safe Space

The primary objective of the event is to provide a safe, non-violent environment where everyone feels welcome and valued. Safe On The Shore and The Nature Conservancy recognizes the importance of nurturing a sense of community, particularly in times when divisions seem to be widening. By offering a space that encourages unity and appreciation for the natural world, the event aims to bridge gaps and create connections among individuals from all walks of life.

The Guided Walk

The centerpiece of the event is a guided walk on The Nature Conservancy’s 2+ mile nature path, nestled within the scenic Brownsville Preserve. Participants will have the opportunity to embark on a journey through the preserve’s captivating landscapes, guided by knowledgeable experts from both organizations. During the guided walk, participants will have the chance to observe and appreciate the diverse flora and fauna that call the Brownsville Preserve home. From vibrant wildflowers and towering trees to birdsong, every step along the path will bring you closer to the natural wonders of the Shore.

Community Picnic

After the walk, participants are encouraged to bring their lunches and enjoy a picnic. It is time to celebrate the diversity of the community and appreciate the unique perspectives each individual brings to the table.
