Family Forest Bathing Walk in Russell Woods Forest Preserve
Time & Location
About the Event
Forest Bathing melds nature immersion with mindfulness and reflection to promote a reduction in stress and improved overall wellness. Join Adventure Works' Kim Hinzy, a Licensed Social Worker and Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide, for a relaxing, sensory experience on the trails of Genoa's beautiful Russell Woods. This walk is focused on bringing families together to deepen their connection with nature in a more playful way!
Research demonstrates that spending 120 minutes in nature each week is key for improvements in health and well-being--this walk exceeds your entire weekly "nature dose!' Each walk will start and begin fireside.
This is a gentle walk at a slow pace and no experience or special equipment is necessary. All proceeds from this walk will benefit Adventure Works--a nationally accredited, for-purpose organization specializing in outdoor behavioral healthcare for youth and their families. Space Limited to 30 participants.
