Exploring Columbia on Foot


     Here is the schedule of the Exploring Columbia on Foot" walks for this year.  Try to do a few of the walks as they are a great way to get some exercise and learn more about our town.  This is from the Columbia Patch:

“Exploring Columbia on Foot” will once again be led by award-winning environmental author Ned Tillman, who will guide discussions on the nature, history and future of these wonderful outdoor settings, including the plans for them and challenges they may face in the near future. Each walk will be about two miles long, with four to five stops along the way.

The walks will be held on nine Thursdays and one Saturday from March through October. Most walks will begin at 10am; the walk at The Mall in Columbia begins at 8:30am. Registration is not required. The schedule of walks and meeting locations includes:
