Summer Trips

Come Spend the Summer with us!


Forest Bathing

First Saturday of every month
8:30 - 10:30 a.m.

When was the last time you felt a sense of awe in nature? Also known as forest therapy, forest bathing is the practice of immersing yourself in nature. Awaken your senses through a series of guided invitations for interacting with nature. Join Serena Vogel, MA, Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide for two-hour guided forest therapy walks in North Shooks Run Park. This is not a time of exercise or hiking. In fact, we will be moving less than ¼mile over the two hours. At the end of our walk, we will have an informal tea ceremony with a small snack.
Note: No two forest bathing walks are alike. Each walk has unique invitations.

Cost: $8
Registration required a minimum of 24 hours in advance. Register online at, by phone at 719.955.3400, or in person 1616 W. Bijou St.
Upcoming Dates: June 1, July 6, August 3
