One Foot in Front of the Other

Lace up your shoes and join us at the Summit Branch to hear Jackson couple Michael and Heidi Kelley share their experience hiking the Camino de Santiago in Europe. If you’re looking to incorporate more walking into your daily life, you’ll also have the chance to learn about resources, benefits and ideas on how to get started.

Whether you are a seasoned hiker, a weekend wanderer or an around the block step counter – all are welcome! Call 517-783-4030 to register.

Tails & Trails

Tails & Trails is back this summer! This program runs July 15-August 30 and is an opportunity for the entire family to discover the wildlife right here in Jackson.

Stop by any JDL branch starting July 15 to pick up a passport with instructions for exploring the Dahlem Center and information on the animals you might find on the trails. Passports will also be available at the Dahlem Center, if you’d like to save an extra step!

Trails & Tails

JDL is excited to partner with the Dahlem Center to present Trails & Tails as a part of the Summer Reading Program! The program will run July 14-31.

Stop by any JDL branch beginning July 14 to pick up a Nature Explorer kit. Each kit includes a Passport to different stops along the trails at the Dahlem Center. As you and your family explore, you’ll mark the Passport at each stop and learn about different “tails” that you might see on the trails.

Bring your completed Passport to a JDL location to be entered into a drawing to win a prize.
