Woodlawn Walkers Stroll To Ninth Season
The Woodlawn Walkers program began its ninth season on May 1. A 2-mile walk around the interior perimeter of the cemetery is held each Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. through October 30.
This popular program will soon reach 5,000 miles logged from 210 participants throughout the past eight years. The intrepid “Woodlawn Walkers” will once again log hundreds of miles on the beautiful grounds, enjoying wildlife, flora and plenty of Toledo history along the way. A “Tree of the Week” is highlighted, engaging walkers with facts and folklore about the arboretums collection they pass by along the way. Over the weeks, they form warm friendships, gain horticultural knowledge, engage in the historical history of Toledo, hatch creative ideas and continue a wonderful tradition at Woodlawn. Drop in for a week or come all five months.
