Greetings fellow Nordic Walkers!
It’s that time of great anticipation for spring and Nordic Walking!
I thought it might be easier for everyone if we had a list of classes and walking groups coming up in communities all over the Twin Cities and Beyond this year. I’m excited about all that are listed for this year and know that I still don’t have all of them. It’s hard to get all the links to work, my apologies, but there are contacts and locations and phone numbers for any that don’t have registration links yet. You can call the Community Ed or Parks and Recreation program listed and get into any class below. My classes and walks are also on my website under upcoming events.
