The Pratt Nature Center, in collaboration with New Milford Hospital’s Plow to Plate Program, is hosting a quarterly “Walk and Talk: A Community Conversation for families and individuals.” A special guest will lead us in an outdoor “adventure” around the Pratt Center with an educational session in the Yurt. “Special Guests” will discuss topics including fitness, mental health, education, substance use, nutrition and farming. Special Guests, will give a quick introduction about themselves and their profession, followed by a walk through the Pratt property. Participants are encouraged to ask questions!
