FREE Introduction to Nordic Walking in Nature with Anna Poddar
July 20, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Join us for fun, fitness, friends, and fresh air in this FREE Introduction to Nordic walking session through the trails at Fox Haven. Nordic walking uses two specially designed poles to work the upper body while walking (like cross country skiing). The poles are used by the arms to match each step taken. This low-impact workout increases your endurance, strengthens your core, arms, chest, back, buttocks, and legs, improves your posture and flexibility and it takes stress off your ankle, knee and hip joints. If you are new to Nordic Walking, then this is where you will start. A 4-part Summer walking series will be launched depending on interest in this free session.
Vaccinations are required to enjoy a safe, mask-free social environment outdoors as we respect and practice COVID precautions.
A minimum of six registered participants is required per class for the series to go ahead for the season. We will have no more than 10 participants during each class. Poles will be provided! RSVP is required to attend.
· All class ticket sales are considered a donation to Fox Haven and help us to fulfill our mission. Full refunds (minus a 20% processing fee) will be given to any participant canceling at least 30 days prior to the scheduled class date. Due to the nature of full series commitments, no refunds will be processed once the series has started.
· Enrollment cannot be transferred to another class. If you are within the 30-day cancellation period, it is best to request a refund and sign up for the desired replacement.
About LandBack Tax
Beginning in 2022, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every ticket sale to the Piscataway Land Trust as a LandBack tax for the land Fox Haven inhabits. Land taxes to indigenous nations function similarly to paying rent or a home mortgage. Payments such as a mortgage provide access to living space, whereas LandBack taxes recognize our access to stolen Indigenous land.
The Piscataway Land Trust is a long-term Indigenous-led effort led by the 501(c)(3) Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians Inc. to restore and rematriate ancestral land and sovereignty in the Chesapeake region to Piscataway and other Chesapeake Indigenous people.

In the event that inclement weather is predicted ahead of an event, you will receive 48 hours’ notice of cancellation or rescheduling. Otherwise, the event is assumed to be rain or shine. An alternative location may be provided if shelter is needed. We do not offer refunds for postponed events or no-shows. However, if Fox Haven cancels, a full refund will be issued.
