Published on: 2019/08/30 - in News

The Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority (CRCA) is once again offering its innovative and immersive Forest Therapy Walk program, encouraging community members to reconnect with nature in a deeper, more meaningful way.

Join Forest Therapy Guide Stana Luxford Oddie for a fall immersion Forest Therapy walk series and learn the practice of Shinrin-yoku (forest bathing). Stana has over 20 years of experience connecting people with nature and is accredited by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs.

Research has determined that spending time in nature not only strengthens the human immune response and reduces stress, but also makes us more creative, mindful, and content in our lives. Tje program offers to “re-ignite your relationship with the amazing, healing landscape of our beautiful world and give yourself permission to take time out of your busy schedule to immerse yourself over three weeks.”

The Fall Forest Therapy Walk Series at Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area offers 3 walks in 3 weeks. Sessions will be held from 1pm to 3pm on Thursdays, September 19 and 26 and October 3. The price is $60 per person and registration is required online at
