Find adventure in Fayette County on Sept. 8 through citizen-led events at Nature Hop in Lexington


The public is invited to enjoy the natural areas of Fayette County through citizen-led events by participating in Lexington’s second Nature Hop.

All Nature Hop activities are free, being supported in part by the city’s Division of Environmental Services.

This year’s Nature Hop will take place on Sept. 8. Events will start at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m. and at 3:30 p.m. The staggered times are designed to let citizens participate in multiple activities if they wish.

The Nature Hop includes 24 unique events, ranging from Geocaching, gaming outdoors and learning about the Preston’s Cave Springs Park. The events are happening throughout Fayette County in a variety of green spaces.

A Nature Hop wrap-up session will be held at 5 p.m. at the Lexington Public Library’s downtown branch (140 East Main Street). Participants are invited to share the highlights of their Nature Hop experiences over art and light refreshments.

Nature Hop was inspired by the Long Day of Urban Nature, an event that organizer Beate Popkin attended in Berlin in 2017.
