Special Notes: This event will take place outdoors, in Assisi Heights Canticle Park and surrounding grounds. Entry into the Assisi Heights building is not permitted at this time. Please park in the Canticle Park parking lot (Parking Map included above) and join the group in the grassy area. Despite the signage, we are open for limited sponsored events only, so you will still see the closure signs at the entrance to Assisi Heights.

Participants should refrain from attending if experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or other illness or have been exposed to any persons infected with COVID-19. (Event is subject to updated COVID-19 guidelines.)
As winter has waned, the green season has dawned. The natural beauty of Assisi Heights is dressed up. Now is the opportune time for an environmental pilgrimage-on-foot strolling through the “Temple of Nature”. The serpentine road carves its way past a colossal cut of limestone to expose a wall creating the hilly topography of Assisi Heights. We will discuss the history of the land, conservation practices of prairie, solar panels and other environmental issues.
Sister Marlys Jax will give an overview of the years of various environmental practices at Assisi Heights. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a walking stick if you so desire.
In the event of inclement weather, program may be rescheduled. Please check for updates prior to the program.
