Let’s Move Pittsburgh, a health and wellness program of Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, is pleased to present a Walk and Talk autumn series in collaboration with Kids Plus Pediatrics. Our mission is to provide families with the opportunity to have conversations with multidisciplinary professionals, such as pediatricians, dietitians and ecologists while walking the beautiful paths of Schenley Park.
After enjoying a nutritious morning snack in Phipps’ Botany Hall Kitchen, you and your family will be invited to explore the biodiversity of our city’s forest, learn about healthy lifestyle principles and pick the brains of children’s health experts.
