Nature Center Playground Fundraiser

Join us for a morning of outdoor fun organized by Thrivent Financial and several other community members and organizations.

$25 Run/Walk plus T-shirt/Food/Activities:
The 5k Run/Walk will take you through gravel trails along the Arkansas River starting at the Nature Center parking lot. The trail will wind along the Nature Center trails westward, with a water stop at the 2.5 km turnaround mark, which will return to the Start/Finish. The trail has little elevation gain with some small paved sections. It is mostly double track and is suitable for avid runners, novices, and walking enthusiasts to challenge themselves with a personal best, a first time goal, or just an adventure walk to help support our community.
Additional donations are encouraged to help build a new playground at our River Campus!
