Event Description

This year, we're introducing a new program, Restorative Hikes.

Those of us who spend time in nature know the healing qualities it has. Nature improves our quality of life and rejuvenates the mind, body, and spirit. Through our Restorative Hikes program--free and open to the public--we hope you'll be able to deepen your connection to nature and each other.

Restorative Hikes will take place once per month, through October. Each hike is led by an experienced guide and focuses on increasing overall happiness and health. Hikes are slow-paced on easy-to-moderate terrain.

The second of our Restorative Hikes will be led by Native American couple, Earl and Lee Dingus. Earl and Lee are accomplished artists and silversmiths. In addition to his artistry, Earl is a talented Native American flute player. He recently gave a world premiere performance of "We Get Our Music from Nature" with musical Director, William Burkhard, and the Pittsburgh Civic Orchestra.

Lee Dingus is a storyteller of traditional Native America stories and a traditional Seneca style dancer. Lee uses her beadwork, story telling, dancing, and lecture skills in conducting youth art camps, after school programs and various art classes for both children and adults.

The hike will start at the Frick Environmental Center at 10:00 a.m. Sunday, July 21, and last approximately 1 ½ hours. Participants should meet at the front desk to meet Earl and Lee and to learn a bit more about their hike.
