Description

Join Melanie Choukas-Bradley, author of The Joy of Forest Bathing and A Year in Rock Creek Park, for a summer forest bathing walk through the Tregaron Conservancy. Forest bathing is a mindfulness practice akin to meditation, yoga and tai chi that involves tuning in to the beauty and wonder of your natural surroundings with all of your senses. Melanie is a nature and forest therapy guide with certification from the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides & Programs. She will guide you on a calming and rejuvenating walk through the Tregaron woodland with plenty of time to slow down and soak up the beauty of this enchanting wild garden, one of the best kept secrets in our city.

Preparation: Dress in comfortable clothing and be prepared for slow walking on natural trails and stone steps with some hill climbing. Bring rain gear if showers are expected.

Weather Policy: We will go ahead in light intermittent rain but will cancel in steady heavy rain or a serious threat of thunderstorms.

Directions, Map and other information: Tregaron is a 10-15 minute walk from the Cleveland Park or Woodley Metro stops and can be accessed on foot or by bicycle (no bikes allowed within Tregaron) from the Klingle Valley Trail. We will meet at the iron gate entrance at 3031 Klingle Road, NW. You may also enter from 3100 Macomb Street, NW and walk through the park to meet up with us at the gate on Klingle.

Please note: There are no restrooms at Tregaron. There is a Starbucks on Connecticut Avenue across from the Zoo and a Firehook Bakery on Connecticut Avenue in Cleveland Park, each of which is a 10-15 minute walk from the meeting place.
