Walkabout/Talkabouts: KAW Council holds monthly walkabout/talkabouts: a chance to take a walk with old and new friends, exploring a particular place in our watershed and learning more about the other-than-human species among us. We also enjoy a potluck meal together, and often shares stories on a topic of interest related to the earth and sky. You are welcome to attend either or both the walkabout and talkabout on any of these dates. Great events for people of all ages
