Spring Forest Bathing at Fontana Park

Fontana Park, Buchanan County

Saturday, April 20, 2024

Forest bathing is a slow-paced, therapeutic guided walk that promotes wellness through a series of gentle, sensory-opening invitations in nature. This practice helps participants to slow down, heighten their senses, and be in the moment. 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 to help 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. We will be on a relatively flat soft surface trail for around ½ mile to accommodate those with mobility issues. This personal experience is limited to ten people and lasts 2-2 ½ hours. Your guide will be Connie Svoboda, Certified Forest Therapy Guide and Naturalist for Black Hawk County Conservation at Hartman Reserve Nature Center.
