Start off your Saturday morning with some fresh air and exercise! We’ll meet in the parking lot at Westwood Hills Nature Center in St. Louis Park and start hiking at 9:30 a.m. Westwood Hills has three miles of trails, including a boardwalk. We’ll hike around the lake and then up into the maple-basswood forest.
Along the way, we will keep our eyes open for Billie, the Barred Owl, a character that Adam Turman (you’ve seen his work, even if you don’t know his name) has created as part of ArtVenture. Take a selfie and submit it to be entered into a weekly giveaway. Visit all ten and be eligible for a Grand Prize. (See the ArtVenture link for more information.) There is still time, although it only runs through September 6th. Afterward, peek into the nicely-done Nature Center or head off to get more selfies with other ArtVenture characters! Several are pretty close.
Other details: Expect to be done by 11:00 or so, in time to move onto the rest of your wonderful weekend! Dress for the weather and bring bug spray, sunscreen, water, a snack. Unfortunately, no pets are allowed at Westwood Hills.
Address for Westwood Hills: 8300 W. Franklin Ave. St. Louis Park, MN 55426. I have heard that Google Maps may misdirect you to an incorrect parking lot with no way to get to the nature center. This page has directions.
I’d like to keep this small so we don’t overrun the trails. Send me a text or e-mail and let me know that you’re coming.
