Slow Adventures Are in the Heart; A Self-Guided Walk Along the San Lorenzo River with Margaret Leonard





Save to:

Take a walk through history. September-November, MAH will host a series of historical walks in Santa Cruz, where walkers can enjoy a breath of fresh air and history with local historians. All walks are organized by local Author Geoffrey Dunn and inspired by MAH’s upcoming exhibition Santa Cruz is in the Heart.

The San Lorenzo River winds through the heart of Santa Cruz, literally shaping its culture and history. But what do you really know about it? Margaret Leonard, the founder of Slow Adventures, encourages people to embrace the delights  of a self-guided adventure. Local luminaries will be planted among the walkers with expertise in local history, birds, and wildflowers.

Walkers Meet at the MAH at 10 am
