Lisa Vernegaard, SVT Executive Director
The tradition continues – now “opt-outside” on Black Friday! Join SVT Executive Director Lisa Vernegaard for a fast-paced walk the Friday after Thanksgiving. The terrain is uneven and includes some short but moderately steep trail sections. This is a special opportunity to connect with nature during the season of gratitude.
