The Heartland Conservation Alliance will host a Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Nature Walk at 1 p.m. on Monday, January 21 in Kansas City.

A trained naturalist will lead the 1.5-mile walk that begins at MLK Jr. Square Park, 1800 Swope Parkway, and winds along Brush Creek Parkway to the Bruce R. Watkins Cultural Center. Parking will be available at the park and a shuttle will return walkers to the parking lot.

Organizers call the event a “restorative walk to enjoy the company of others and the stillness of nature as we reflect on the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” Organizers said it will take place regardless of the weather. All ages are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served at the end of the walk.

The event is co-sponsored by Missouri State Parks, Kansas City Parks and Recreation, Bruce R. Watkins Cultural Center, Blue River Watershed Association, Renew the Blue, Youth Volunteer Corps of Greater Kansas City and the Center for Diversity and the Environmental Professionals of Color.

Location: MLK Jr. Square Park
