A bit about our Dementia Friendly Nature Walks
Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation, in cooperation with our partners at the Alzheimer's Association, Dementia Friendly Washoe County, the Sanford Center for Healthy Aging, and the Reno Senior Citizen Advisory Committee, is offering a free, weekly series of interpretive walks specifically designed for individuals living with dementia and their care partners.
The walks are an extension of the Discover Your Parks program, the goal of which is to get community members outdoors exploring and stewarding our local parks. These walks will give participants an opportunity to connect to the natural world through an experiential exploration of seasonal change along the Truckee River in Idlewild Park. The walks focus on the seasonal change of plant and animal life (i.e first bud burst of target plants, the first sighting of a specific bird, first leaf fall of the season, etc.).
* Participants should be accompanied by a care partner
Mark Your Calendar!
Walks are held every Tuesday at 10:00 am. We are keeping a close eye on the air quality and will be back in person as soon as it is safe.
Each walk will begin and end at the Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation office in Idlewild Park. These walks are free and open to the public.
We hope to see you there!
What to bring on the walks:
Proper walking shoes
Weather appropriate clothing
Wheelchair, walker, cane, etc.
