Take a 2.5-mile nature walk along Brush Creek with conservation groups in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. from 1 – 4 p.m. on Monday, January 20 in Kansas City.

The walk will begin at MLK Jr. Square Park, 1800 Swope Parkway, and wind 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.” The walk includes a litter cleanup along Brush Creek. 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.
