McFarland Clinic and Story County Conservation are excited to partner in an initiative called TrailsRx. McFarland Clinic physicians can now prescribe a trip to the Tedesco Environmental Learning Corridor for your health! Getting outside has many physical, emotional, and mental benefits.
Trails are free!
They’re accessible for all, regardless of income.
Trail prescriptions are easy to follow and can give a trail beginner the helpful introduction they need to get comfortable. Providers can hold patients accountable with a prescription.
Patients reap mental health benefits as well as physical benefits from being outdoors.
Great for patients dealing with obesity, endurance, balance and mental health issues.
Trails can be intimidating to beginners. Our Trails Rx map features loops and routes specifically chosen for beginners.
Nature doesn’t have side effects.
Kick off the TrailsRx program at the Tedesco Environmental Learning Corridor Grand Opening! We will walk a designated loop around the park to celebrate. The route will be short (about a quarter mile) and is suitable for most walkers. Meet at the entrance to the park at 5pm for the ribbon cutting; walk will immediately follow.
