Come get ready for spring hiking! Writer Cindy Brown will speak at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 17 at the Los Alamos Nature Center at 2600 Canyon Road.

Brown is the author of the Taos Hiking Guide, published last summer, and has been the hiking columnist for The Taos News for the last five years. With the coming of spring, it is time to think about getting outside on the trails in Northern New Mexico.

As part of her presentation, Brown will discuss how to get ready to hike, what to wear, and what to bring with you on the trail. Wildlife and wild weather will be among the topics for the evening. Her book will be available for purchase in the Los Alamos Nature Center gift shop. Learn more about Brown at www.taoshiking.com.
