Nature center's run/walk set in woods, trails

A local nature center will host a run/walk next month to raise funds for children's environmental programs.

Organizers for the Aldo Leopold Nature Center's10k Run & 5k Run/Walk said participants can challenge their bodies on June 22 with cross country competition as they stimulate your senses with the scenery in the heart of the Driftless Area.

The "Run Wild in the Woods" run/walk -- to be held in Black Earth -- will support children's environmental education programs and restoration efforts at the nature center, the group said.

The ALNC said the fee to register is $50, or $35 for center members, and includes race participation, a "Run Wild" T-shirt and post-race refreshments.

The event begins at 9 a.m. and an award ceremony will immediately follow the race at noon, honoring the top three runners in male and female categories.
