Regina Jane’s Walks 2023

Join our free, volunteer-led “walking conversations.” We’ll observe, reflect, share, question and re-imagine the places in which we live, work and play. Or come by the Central Library to learn about Jane Jacobs, the inspiration for Jane’s Walks, and how you can lead a walk yourself in our second weekend of walks coming up in June!

The event is finished.
