Nature Connection Walk

Event Date: July 20, 2024
Start Time: 9:30 am
End Time: 12:00 pm

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