About POST Walks & Talks

Every fall and spring, POST organizes a series of special outings for donors who make an annual gift of $500 or more and we want you to join us! These popular events take place on POST-protected lands, many of which are not yet open to the public.

When you join us for these walks, you can see firsthand how we're putting your donation to work. You can also meet fellow POST supporters while enjoying a spectacular day out on the land.
