2nd Sunday November Forest Bathing Event

Hartman Reserve Nature Center, Black Hawk County

Sunday, November 14, 2021

Forest bathing is a slow-paced, therapeutic, guided walk that promotes wellness through a series of gentle, sensory-opening invitations. It’s a time for individual, quiet reflection. Studies have shown a wide array of health benefits to being in nature, especially in the cardiovascular and immune systems, and for helping to stabilize mood and improve cognition. A growing number of health professionals are prescribing a walk in the woods to complement or even substitute for traditional medicine. Connie Svoboda, Conservation staff and Certified Forest Therapy Guide, will lead the event. Registration deadline is November 11 at noon, after which time an email will be sent to participants with instructions specific to the event.

Sign-up is limited to 8 participants, ages 16 and above. Please complete and email the waiver or bring it with you to the event.

Monthly forest bathing experiences occur every second Sunday of a month, with occasional special events announced. Private walks for organizations, families, and business retreats are welcomed; contact Connie at 319-277-2187 to schedule.
