Wellness - Adult

*Registration for this program is required and closes 10/4 at midnight* Where: Primrose Studio. Meet at the studio at 4300 Michaud Lane near Reservoir Ridge. Drive to the back of the parking lot and through the green gate that is normally closed, but will be open for registered participants this day. When: Wednesday, October 4, 1:00p.m. - 3:00p.m. Program Description: Experience the Japanese tradition of Shinrin-Yoku on this guided nature walk. Learn to open your senses to nature’s healing power. We will walk very slowly, stopping often, and sitting for periods of time, so it is a very low-intensity activity. Unlike a hike, we are not concerned with getting to a certain place by a certain time. A waiver is required to sign upon arrival for all participants. Accessibility: Program takes place both in and out of doors and along wide dirt roads and trails around the studio. Accessible bathrooms and parking available. The walk will cover 0.5 - 0.75 miles over very gentle terrain. If you have any questions or concerns about the accessibility of a program, please contact [email protected] or call 970-416-2815 for more information. People with disabilities are welcome to participate in all programs and we are happy to make any appropriate accommodations. Requests for disability-related services can be made during registration through the activity contact or by calling 970-416-2815 at least 2 weeks prior to the start of the activity. What to Bring: Dress appropriately for the weather forecast. Bring sunscreen, a hat, closed-toe, sturdy shoes, and plenty of water. Weather permitting, you will be invited (not required) to remove your shoes for earth connection time, so you may want to bring a small towel to wipe your feet.

Joan C - Volunteer Naturalist Assistant

I've been an active volunteer in education since 1984 with school field trips, with trail hikes near Oregon's Columbia River Gorge, and with tours at FC's historic Avery House. Besides regularly camping and hiking in Rocky, I've assisted the NAD since 2013 and love learning more of the history, geology, ecology, flora, fauna, and stewardship of our unique northern Front Range region.
