We’ll take a walk and let go of distractions and stresses. Time spent in nature benefits our mood, thinking, and health, according to many research studies (this event is for nature appreciation and wellness and is not therapy). We can spend some time among the trees and grasses, breathing easily and noticing what it is like to live in the present moment.

The walk is designed for adults and older children (older than 10). While discussing and practicing mindfulness, we will walk to the ridge and explore the trails for a while.

We can then take a little time to reflect on what is around us and within us, writing or drawing in a nature journal. Doing this helps us organize our thoughts, adds to our self-understanding, and may benefit our mental wellness in other ways. Bring a notebook and pen and/or pencil!

Please check back to see how the weather is shaping up that day. We'll reschedule if there are storms.

The walk leader is Michael Smith, an author, naturalist and mental health professional.
