Summer Naturalist: Forest Bathing (Ages 10-17)
June 29 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
Does your child love nature and want to expand their identification skills? In this special COVID-adapted program geared toward youth ages 10 and up, participants can join our experts for weekly, small-group outdoor sessions. Though programming will take place outdoors, participants are required to wear a face covering at all times.
“Forest bathing” is the act of using your senses to take in your surroundings while slowly moving through the woods. On a forest bathing walk, a guide will offer a series of invitations that will open one’s senses while interacting with the natural world. Enhance your happiness, creativity, and wellbeing during this easy walk that covers less than one mile in 1 hour. This hike will be led by Boothbay Region Land Trust Environmental Educator and Certified Forest Therapy Guide, Tracey Hall. This program is made possible through a partnership with the Boothbay Region Land Trust.
Please note: In an effort to keep the group size small, this is a drop-off program. If your child would be more comfortable with you nearby, please contact Erika Huber at email@example.com before the session to discuss options. If this session is full, please call 207-633-8000 to be added to our waiting list.
Tracey Hall is an environmental educator for the Boothbay Region Land Trust and a Certified Forest Therapy Guide with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy.
