Join us for a guided nature and forest therapy walk at Minnehaha Falls on the Summer Solstice. Located between the Minnehaha and Hiawatha neighborhoods of Minneapolis, Minnehaha Regional Park is one of Minneapolis’ oldest and most popular parks – featuring a majestic 53-foot waterfall, limestone bluffs, and river overlooks within its 193 acres. A wilderness oasis in an urban setting, the park contains oak, elm, silver maple, basswood, hackberry and cottonwood trees, as well as native and prairie woodland wildflowers. During the walk, participants will be guided through a Shinrin-Yoku (“forest bathing”) practice by Leigha Horton, Certified Guide and Practicum Mentor with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs.
*We recommend participants arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of our walk and plan to stay through the scheduled duration. Due to the guided nature of Shinrin Yoku, we are unable to accommodate latecomers.
*The nearest restrooms to our walk are located inside the Minnehaha Pavilion, which houses the Sea Salt eatery. The pavilion closes at 9p. Please plan accordingly.
*The walk will continue rain or shine, except in cases of severe weather.
*Metered, accessible parking is available on-site.
Full details, including specific meeting location, what to bring, and on-site amenities will be provided in a registration confirmation letter.
