Wellness Walk @ Cressmoor Praire

August 10 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm CDT


Unwind and connect with nature with our Wellness Walks series, hosted by Shirley Heinze Land Trust, Purdue University Nutrition Education Program, and Community Healthcare System. Held on the 10th of each month, these FREE Wellness Walks will take place in various Shirley Heine nature preserves throughout Northwest Indiana and will focus on a variety of conservation, physical activity and health related topics from our partners.

August’s Wellness Walk will take place at Cressmoor Prairie Nature Preserve on Saturday, August 10, 2024 at 3:00 pm CT.

Late summer is one of the best times to view Cressmoor Prairie, when the purple and golden flowers of ironweed, milkweed, compass plant, prairie dock, and many other wildflowers are at their peak. This event features a casual stroll through the prairie, with opportunities to chat with healthcare professionals while learning about the local ecosystem. Our hike leaders will also demonstrate how spending time outside benefits your health.

We will meet at the WEST entrance of Cressmoor Prairie, near Emily Silich Park at 615 W 40th Place, Hobart, IN.

  • Trail length: 0.78 mile
  • Terrain: mostly flat, grassy trails; some uneven terrain
  • We recommend to bring sturdy shoes and a water bottle.
