How Walking in Nature Changes the Brain
A walk in the park may soothe the mind and, in the process, change the workings of our brains in ways that improve our mental health.
AARP has scheduled a series of AARP Neighborhood Walks in various neighborhoods in Portland. The walk on October 13 will be with SW Trails going from Gabriel Park to Multnomah Village.

Saturday, August 8, 9:00 am
The August 8 walk will be led by Rick Kappler. From Wilson High School, we will car pool to Bridlemile Elementary School. Then we will walk through the interesting Bridlemile neighborhood with views of yards, gardens, paths and parks including Albert Kelly Park, Thomas City Park and Hamilton City Park. The walk will be 5.3 miles with 370 feet elevation gain.
Meet behind the bleachers at Wilson High School (SW Sunset Blvd. and Capitol Highway) and be ready to go at 9:00 am. Bring a snack and water and dress for the weather. Well behaved dogs are allowed. They must be on leash. For health reasons, there is no smoking on SW Trails walks.
For more information or to volunteer to lead a future walk in your neighborhood, contact Sharon Fekety, firstname.lastname@example.org.
