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. All participants are requested to wear their masks while on Assisi Heights property. 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.)
Enjoy one hour exploring the rich history and natural beauty of Assisi Heights. This hike will traverse the 110-acre site learning about the plot, the people, and the current easement plan. Hikes are on rough gravel, uneven terrain, and not stroller-friendly. Dress appropriately for conditions and bring water. We will end in Canticle Park and enjoy roasting s’mores!
Sister Marlys Jax will lead this expedition, relaying the history and antidotes of the people who farmed the land.
In the event of inclement weather, program may be rescheduled. Please check for updates prior to the program.
