Explore and Walnut Animal Group collaborate for a dog hike
Explore and Walnut Animal Group (WAG) hosted a dog hike collaboration at Snow Creek Park on Saturday, Jan. 13.
WAG, which held multiple dog hikes in the past, reached out to Explore to promote outdoor recreation and increase member involvement. The purpose of the dog hike was for club members to explore nature and relieve themselves from academic stress. Club members who owned a dog allowed others to take turns walking their dogs.
“There was definitely a friendly atmosphere that allowed everyone to freely talk to one another despite never having interacted before,” Explore cabinet member senior Eunice Castro said. “I feel that the presence of the dogs helped set that mood, making it easier to break the ice and start conversations with new people.”
