The Seward Park Audubon Center has curated guided nature walks through Seward Park. This is not a virtual walk. You'll be in beloved Seward Park walking amongst the tall trees. Using your smart device, you can enjoy a guided nature walk on your schedule and at your own pace. Google Maps will provide point-to-point directions and notify you when you have arrived at each notable site on your trek. At each stop, your smart device will provide a brief description and images to enhance your experience.
The walks are free and can be accessed through your smartphone or tablet using Google Maps, which is probably already on your device. If you would prefer a printed map we can email a PDF or send a printed map via the US Postal Service.
