Jeanne Christie, a Nature and Forest Therapy Guide-in-Training will lead a 2 ½ hour Forest Therapy Walk hosted by the Greater Lovell Land Trust. Forest Therapy Guiding is a practice that is gaining recognition within the U.S. and abroad.
There is an increasing body of research identifying a variety of benefits from spending time in nature, especially when all senses are fully engaged. These range from blood pressure and stress levels to increased cognition and creativity. The goal of the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs is to integrate nature and forest therapies into health care, education and management systems.
The trail we follow won't be more than a half mile in length.
The walk is free, but registration is required to participate and limited to a maximum of 16 participants.
