Georges River Land Trust, in conjunction with the St. George Conservation Commission, presents its annual “turtle” walk, this year at Fort Point in St. George, Thursday, Aug. 18, at 10 a.m.

Known as a “turtle” walk because the pace is slow and easy, this event welcomes kids of all ages and their parents and grandparents. Also hosting the event are the St. George Parks and Recreation Committee and the Friends of St. George. All participants are encouraged to walk barefoot to experience the place as a turtle might. Fort Point is located on Route 131. The walk is free and open to the public. Call the land trust to register at 594-5166.

Participants will meet at the Fort Point parking lot at Wiley’s Corner. Those attending should dress appropriately for a woods walk and bring a snack and water. The trail is relatively gentle, and the walk will take about two hours.
