2021 Forest Therapy Walks


Immerse yourself in nature and experience the healing effects of forest therapy or Shinrin-Yoki (Japanese for forest bathing).  The walk is not about the destination, but instead the awakening of your senses to the natural environment around you. Reconnect with nature during these mindful walks with a certified Forest Therapy guide.  The walk is held entirely outdoors.  Be prepared to walk over uneven terrain.  Wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes. We will follow CDC guidelines and practice social distancing. The forest therapy guide is bilingual so the program can be experienced in Spanish and English.  Participants must be 12 years and older.  Minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian.

2021 Caminatas de terapia forestal

Sumérjase en la naturaleza y experimente los efectos curativos de la terapia forestal o Shinrin-Yoku (baño en el bosque en japonés). La caminata no se trata del destino, sino del despertar de tus sentidos al entorno na-tural que te rodea. Vuelva a conectarse con la naturaleza durante estas caminatas conscientes con un guía certificado de terapia forestal. La caminata se realiza totalmente al aire libre. Prepárese para caminar hasta una milla sobre terreno que no son planos. Use ropa cómoda y zapatos para caminar. Seguiremos las pautas de los CDC y practicaremos el distanciamiento social. La guía de terapia forestal es bilingüe, por lo que el pro-grama se puede experimentar en español e inglés. Esta caminata es para participantes mayores de 12 años. Todos los menores deben ir acompañados por un adulto.


Sábado, 18 de diciembre de 10:00am — 12:00pm
