Join certified Forest Therapy Guide Kristie Virgoe for an engaging and interactive Forest Bathing experience at Ken Reid Conservation Area on Friday, December 10th.
This exploration of nature and our connectivity with the world around us is suited for both newcomers to forest bathing as well as those who have enjoyed the practice previously.
We all know how good being in nature can make us feel. We have known it for centuries. The sounds of the forest, the scent of the trees, the sunlight playing through the leaves, the fresh, clean air — these things give us a sense of comfort. They ease our stress and worry, help us to relax and to think more clearly. Being in nature can restore our mood, give us back our energy and vitality, refresh and rejuvenate us.
Thanks to the generous support of Walmart Canada and the Community Giving Donation Program, we are offering the Forest Bathing session for $10 per registrant, with proceeds supporting the Canadian Mental Health Association.

The Strategy was started at the beginning of 2021 and included a review and analysis of our existing monitoring programs, alongside public and stakeholder consultations, to understand what our monitoring program priorities need to focus on for the next 10 years.
Our existing programs cover a range of activities that include water quality, water quantity, groundwater, climate, biomonitoring and more!
Join us and learn how our monitoring program will help to meet the needs of our communities.
