Healthy Living: Fresh Air, Fitness, Friendship, and Fun

Summer 2020

Numerous studies have shown that as we grow older, our health may decline from lack of exercise and, more importantly, loneliness and isolation. Join Timucuan Parks Foundation and AARP Jacksonville for virtual walks featuring Jacksonville’s parks and preserves and learn about the physical and mental benefits of recreating outdoors.

The Healthy Living walks are now virtual on Zoom. Free and open to all ages, but registration required below.

Healthy Living: A Year in Our National Parks
July 1 at 9:30AM

Mark Woods, columnist for The Florida Times-Union, talks about spending one year in the national parks, working on a project about the future of the parks. His journey started with a January 1 sunrise in Maine’s Acadia National Park and ended with a December 31 sunset in Hawaii’s Haleakala National Park. In the middle of the journey, Mark lost his mother—an event that changed the year, his project and subsequent book, Lassoing the Sun: A Year in America’s National Parks.

7/1/20 – THANK YOU to Mark Woods for his wonderful presentation this morning on his year in the national parks. We will make the Zoom recording available for viewing soon so please check back here or also check our social media channels.
