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.Recommendations
- 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.
