Description

THE NATURAL AREAS CONSERVANCY PRESENTS:

Forest Bathing in High Rock Park, Staten Island

With certified Forest Therapy Practitioners Nancy Kopans and Linda Lombardo

Saturday, October 5, from 10am - 1pm

Join the Natural Areas Conservancy for forest bathing: a low-intensity activity, based on the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku. Forest bathing focuses on gently engaging mind, spirit, and body with the natural environment — empowering park visitors to deepen their connection with New York City’s parks and local environments. It’s the perfect opportunity to get outside, hug a tree (literally!), and show your love for the amazing natural areas that exist in our City. If you would like to learn more, we recommend these articles by the NY Times and NPR.

About this Event
Our expert guides will be Nancy Kopans and Linda Lombardo. Nancy is the founder of Urban Edge Forest Therapy and an attorney for Ithaka, an education non-profit. Linda founded Long Island Forest Walks and is a certified life coach.

This event is free and will take place rain or shine. But space is limited and registration is required. If you would like to attend, we ask that you please commit to the entire 2+ hour event. Meet-up instructions will be emailed to you upon registration. This will not be a strenuous walk, but please bring comfortable close-toed shoes, weather-appropriate clothing, and water.

This event was made possible through support to the Natural Areas Conservancy from Con Edison.
