About the event

Inspired by the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing,  Nature Connection Walk will be an immersive time spent connecting with nature in our wildlife sanctuary.

 This relaxing morning will  include guided activities done while walking, standing, and/or sitting along our trails. 

The trails and guided activities will change each month, making each walk a fresh experience.

The variety of health benefits that time in nature offers is well documented. These benefits include the potential reduction of blood pressure and stress/anxiety. 

Spending time in nature can increase a sense of well-being. Join us and discover how much spending intentional time connecting with nature can improve your life.

Participants need to be able to spend about 2 hours outside, walking at an easy pace, and stand and/or sit on the ground quietly for up to 20 minutes at a time. 

Trails are not handicap accessible; some trails include walking up and down hilly areas. 

Phones and other electronic devices are discouraged from use during the walk, and ringers and notifications must be kept silent.

  • Dress for being outside in the weather as we will go out in most conditions. Exceptions include heavy rain, thunder/lightning, and very icy trails.
  • Wear long pants and closed toe shoes that are suitable for walking on gravel and uneven surfaces.
  • Insect repellent effective against mosquitoes, ticks and chiggers is advised during warmer months.
  • Water bottle with carrier to bring on the trail.

I have prepaid for 5 spots for this event and cannot get a refund. If you purchase a ticket, you can request a refund from me up to 2 weeks in advance by emailing to give me time to find a replacement. 

If you need to cancel after that date, I will do my best to fill your spot and refund but it is not guaranteed.
