Forest Therapy Walk @Buxton Park




Date/Time
Date(s) - 09/22/2019
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Location  Buxton Park

Warren County Conservation and Indianola Parks & Recreation will be hosting a nature & forest therapy guided walk.  We invite you to unplug, slow down, and experience mindfulness in nature. This gentle three-hour walk will focus on using all your senses to explore Buxton Park. A guide-in-practicum of Association of Nature And Forest Therapy Association will guide you through nature explorations. This walk is based on Shinrin-yoku or forest therapy that can provide many positive health benefits such as lowered blood pressure, decreased anxiety, increased focus, relaxation, and a connection with nature.

Please come prepared by wearing comfortable walking shoes and dress in layers for the weather.  You might want to bring a light snack and drinking water.  A small backpack, sunscreen, and bug repellent may be useful.  You are welcome to bring a mat to sit on or small camping chair. There will be small sit mats available for use. We will hike if there is light rain, so bring rain gear.  Please meet at the gazebo. This program is geared towards those 16 and up. No pets.

Since this walk is being lead by guides-in-practicum, there is no charge for this event. Donations are appreciated and will be shared between Indianola Parks & Recreation and Friends of Warren County Conservation. Registration is required by September 19, 2019. There is limited space and a minimum of 4 participants is required to host this walk.
