Health walks slated at Poverty Point

Poverty Point State Historic Site is announcing the second annual “Health Walk” program beginning Jan. 15.

The walk will be held at the site, and is geared for various levels of fitness, starting with the half-mile walk and ending with a two mile walk around the site.

The walk will begin promptly at 3 p.m. and end at 4:30 p.m. on the evenings of Tuesdays and Thursdays. The walk is open to the public and is free of charge.

A great way to walk off those extra holiday pounds. So put on your walking shoes and come on out to the site and let’s walk for your health.
