Only you can help prevent...a boring time in the outdoors. The sixth annual Nature Hop returns Sunday, Sept. 17, and you get to help with the planning.

The City’s Division of Environmental Services is seeking community partners to help host educational + fun events that celebrate the outdoors. Nature Hop aims to:

  • Shine a light on nature in our urban environment
  • Encourage people to get outside + find new ways to enjoy Fayette County’s green spaces
  • Bring awareness to the natural areas in Lexington that can serve for passive recreation such as outdoor observation, walking + hiking.

Events will have staggered start times — 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m. + 3:30 p.m. — so participants can hop around to multiple activities.
So, do you have a family-friendly and fun idea? Then submit your event by next Monday, Aug. 21.
