Jane's Walk is back!
The festival of free, citizen-led walking tours runs May 6th, 7th, and 8th.
We love Jane's Walk (we even helped plan a series of Greenbelt-inspired walks for last year's festival)! It's a not-to-be-missed chance to learn, from experts and civic champions, more about the region, and the communities, we inhabit.
And this year this year's two important Jane's Walk anniversaries are giving us even added incentive to take part. Not only is it the 10th year of the festival, this week also marks what would have been the 100th Birthday of Jane Jacobs - famed urbanist and activist and Jane's Walk namesake.
We're so excited that we combed through the Jane's Walk listings looking for walks that touch on issues Greenbelt champions care about the most - from the history of our protected natural landscapes, to the importance of spending time outside, to the need to build smart livable communities.
