ENGAGING SENIORS IN THE OUTDOORS
The Lakehead Region Conservation Authority (LRCA) is once again proud to offer our popular Engaging Seniors in the Outdoors Program. These complimentary programs are possible thanks to the generous support of the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation. These workshops, some of which may feature guest speakers, are designed for older adults who can comfortably walk for one hour at a gentle pace. You don't have to be a senior to participate, though, as all programs are family friendly!
