Walk-cetera - NSTT extras






Give Back to the Parks
NSTT has an active "Give Back to the Parks" program made up of two components: taking donations at events and an annual park work day. At each event NSTT has a donation jar for walkers to contribute money to that particular park. At the end of the event, NSTT matches up to $50 of the money contributed by the walkers and writes a check to the park or its Friends group. Since 2005, NSTT and its walkers have contributed $7,421 dollars to the parks. The work day is usually scheduled at a metro area State Park where the club goes out and helps by picking up trash, clearing fallen branches from trails, planting seedlings, or whatever task will help each particular park.

So when you see that donation jar, put a buck in ... it goes to help our parks!

NSTT Picnics at State Park events

We feed our walkers!

Every NSTT event offers an “event picnic” available to all participants for a small donation to cover our costs. The menu may vary, but the food is always tasty and usually cooked over the open fire!

So plan to spend some time visiting and grab a bite to eat, while supporting NSTT events in Minnesota State Parks.

Note: Grilling will finish one hour prior to the end of the event to allow for cooling before transport.

NSTT K9 Corps Program

Does your “best friend” walk with you? Then pick up a K-9 Corps registration book and give your best friend credit for walking too! All folkswalks count but get rewards only from NSTT. Receive a bag of gourmet treats at 10 events and a NSTT logo bandana at 25 events!

Remember!
Carry water folks!!
We’ll have water at the start/finish but you should also carry a water bottle along with you on the trail!

Geocaching at NSTT events

Remember to bring your GPS along to NSTT events and check out some of the geocaches in the parks and in the area. If you don’t have a GPS many state parks have units that you can sign out for free. For more information on caches in the state parks check out www.mnstateparks.info. To find other caches in the area visit www.geocaching.com.

Loop ‘d Loops!
That’s right ... NSTT is “loopy over loops!” We like our walkers to be within a safe distance for help if ever needed. Our multi-loop trail system makes it easier for everyone to participate in our events, whether young or old, able or not so able.
Come join us!

Don't like to walk alone?
Just ask mention at the registration desk that you’d like a walking partner! We want you to enjoy our events ... so don’t be shy!
