  North Shields Ponds Natural Area  |  Registration Required

Natural Discoveries

Join a Volunteer Naturalist for a slow and peaceful Wellness Walk through North Shields Ponds Natural Area. Connect with nature as a way to ease into the weekend. Please dress for the weather and wear shoes with traction that can get wet and muddy. This program is most appropriate for older children and adults, but all are welcome. Approximately 1-2 miles on flat and gentle terrain. Walk will be slow paced on fairly wide trails. Location: Meet at the North Shields Ponds parking lot on the west side of the street. If parking is full, the Shields Street River Access, just to the south, can be used as overflow. There is a short pathway to walk between the two lots. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, masks and physical distancing will be required by any participants and volunteers during this program. No more than 10 people will be present at the program. Program requirements are subject to change as CDC and County guidelines are updated. Additional instructions will be sent by e-mail to those registered prior to the program. Waivers will be required to be signed either online or in person upon arrival. If you or anyone in your household is experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 (cough, difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste/smell, etc.) do not attend this program.

Madeline M - Volunteer Naturalist

Our connection to nature is often a deeply personal, spiritual experience. When I trot up a trail, it is about so much more than the physical act of walking. It puts me in a more receptive mindset, I am paying attention to things that are there as much as the things that aren’t. Nature is where I feel at home, where I come to seek clarity, seek guidance, seek thought and yes, seek answers, about the challenges that life throws my way.
