BeOut Activity Signup

Join Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide Lori Carter to experience nature’s power to soothe, refresh, and open your heart. Based on the the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku (roughly translated to Forest Bathing) is a slow, sensory-based walk in the woods, during which, through various “invitations”, or activities, given to you, we focus on the sights, sounds, smells, feels and tastes of nature. This is neither a naturalist exploration nor a fitness trek; this walk is about soaking in the vast benefits of spending relaxed time in nature. It’s also about tending and mending our relationships with nature, ourselves, and others. There are no requirements – just come as you are. There is a slight hill heading down into the park. If there are any accessibility concerns please let us know ahead of time and we can accommodate. The walk will end with a tea gathering to celebrate our time together and to pause and appreciate the place where we are.
