Forest Walking at Schuylkill
The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education welcomes fall’s beauty and the peacefulness of winter with a variety of wellness programs along our trails. Forest bathing, shinrin-yoku, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., November 30, is a traditional Japanese form of nature therapy.
From the immune boosts of calming compounds given off by trees to the improved mood, energy and overall well-being offered, forest bathing helps us find healing through deepening our connection to nature. It ends with a tea ceremony using native plants. Wellness programs occur on the last Saturday of every month.
Admission is free, no registration is required. Location: 8480 Hagy's Mill Rd., Philadelphia. For more information, call 215-482-7300 or visit SchuylkillCenter.org.
