With (finally!) cooler temperatures and beautiful colors, October is the perfect time to take a walk or a hike. Walking is the perfect activity for any fitness level, so let’s make it a habit for all year ‘round. You earn one leaf a day based on the number of steps you take each day, and your goal is to earn a total of 30 leaves or more.
 
Print the Walktober flyer to hang around the county offices.
