***Due to Covid-19 this event has been cancelled.***

Warren County Conservation and Ted Lare Gardens are teaming up for an evening guided forest therapy walk at Annett Nature Center.

We invite you to unplug, slow down, and experience mindfulness in nature. This gentle three-hour walk will focus on using all your senses to explore Annett Nature Center trails. A certified guide with the Association of Nature And Forest Therapy Association will guide you through nature explorations. This walk is based on Shinrin-yoku or forest therapy that can provide many positive health benefits such as lowered blood pressure, decreased anxiety, increased focus, relaxation, and a connection with nature.

Please come prepared by wearing comfortable walking shoes and dress in layers for the weather.  You might want to bring a light snack and drinking water.  A small backpack, sunscreen, and bug repellent may be useful.  You are welcome to bring a mat to sit on or a small camping chair. There will be small sit mats available for use. We will hike if there is light rain, so bring rain gear.  Please meet in the Lester Davison Pavilion (located next to the Annett Nature Center. This program is geared towards those 16 and up. No pets.

The cost is $20 per person. Registration is required at https://tedsgardens.com/

Please register by June 28, 2020. There is limited space and a minimum of 4 participants is required to host this walk.
