Have you ever wondered why you feel so wonderful after digging in the garden, doing lawn care, hiking or just going for a long walk? Kate Bast, Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide (ANFT) will talk about forest bathing and the current research on nature connection as a pillar for a healthy life. The event will be informational and hands-on, with a short, guided sensory opening.


Also, discover some beautiful locations you can visit to bond with nature. Missy VanLanduyt, Recreation Partnership Section Chief for the Wisconsin State Park System, will show you what our wonderful state parks have to offer - from favorite places and hidden gems, to programs and events.
