Dementia Friendly Nature Walks

For people living with dementia and their family care partners.

Walk with a supportive group, connect with nature, and support your health through light outdoor activity!

Dementia Friendly Nature Walks are back!
Join us every Thursday at 10 am starting May 23, 2024. 


Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation, in cooperation with our partners at Dementia Friendly Washoe County and the Sanford Center for Aging, offers a free, weekly series of interpretive walks specifically designed for individuals living with dementia and their care partners.

 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.).

Join us for the walks every Thursday at 10 am at

Idlewild Park-  50 Cowan Drive, Reno NV.

*Registration not required.

*Participants who need assistance with personal tasks must be accompanied by a care partner.
