FOREST BATHING SPRING SERIES

Hosted by NOVA Parks and Meadowlark Botanical Gardens


Reconnect with Nature. Reconnect with you.

It’s Spring! Time to start reaping the benefits of a regular nature practice.

Forest bathing, also called nature therapy is the fast-growing practice of enjoying and connecting deeply with the restorative powers of nature for whole-being health and wellness. Studies indicate that time spent in nature boosts the immune system, reduces anxiety and soothes over-stressed neural pathways associated with technology addiction and attention fatigue, improving our ability to focus and sharpening cognition and creativity. Perhaps most importantly, the simple act of tuning out the “noise” of the modern world and tuning in to the quiet of Nature can create the space to reconnect with who we are and what is meaningful in our lives, reminding us that when we choose those things that most enliven us, we tend to be happier and healthier.

Leave the devices behind and join a certified nature therapy guide, Denise Burdette, at the exceptional Meadowlark Gardens. Meandering forest trails, reflective lakes, soft meadows, and lush gardens - through a series of sensory-opening invitations you’ll slow down, quiet the mind and explore your relationship with the natural world for renewal and insight. You’ll leave feeling soothed, centered and more intimately connected with yourself and the world around you.

As a practice, forest bathing is a gentle, slow activity accessible for most fitness levels. We will walk on a forest trail for no more than about a quarter of a mile over the course of 2 hours. It’s a great experience for couples, family members, friends, and small groups.


  • $30/ 2 hours; Group size is limited to 12 people.

  • Morning sessions will take place before the park is open to the public. PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED to reserve your place and receive meet-up instructions and weather alerts.

  • Ages 14 and older. A parent or legal guardian must accompany those under 18 years of age.
