The Town of Petawawa is pleased to host renowned author Richard Louv to kick off its new and innovative Walking Loops project.
Louv, who penned the international bestseller books: Last Child in the Woods and The Nature Principle, will share his wisdom about the importance of promoting and maintaining healthy communities, and the need for children and adults to enjoy the benefits of connecting with nature.
The Petawawa Walking Loops project is designed to provide tools to get people of all ages outdoors and active -- in and around town. Walking trails of various challenge levels have been mapped and marked in various community neighbourhoods, effectively connecting municipal parks, woodlands and experiential outdoor spaces.
Natural and built environments such as these -- local, accessible and supportive -- provide rich opportunities for improved health, well-being and a higher quality of life for everyone in the region.
This event supports and builds on the priorities and work of the Physical Activity Network - Renfrew County (PAN-RC) and the county-wide Healthy Community Partnership (HCP).
