Join us for a guided nature and forest therapy walk through the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Located about four miles west of Chanhassen, the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is more than 1,200 acres of gardens and tree collections, prairie and woods and miles of trails. An area long-inhabited and tended by the Dakota people before colonization, this land and water is presently managed and tended by the University of Minnesota Horticultural Research Center, with the Men’s Garden Club of Minneapolis, Lake Minnetonka Garden Club, Minnesota State Horticultural Society and other community supporters creating the Arboretum as a gift to the University of Minnesota. During the walk, participants will be guided through a Shinrin-Yoku (“forest bathing”) practice by Leigha Horton, Guide-in-Practicum 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 late admittance (however, we do provide a five minute grace period after the scheduled start time).
*There are public restrooms on-site, in the Visitor Center next to the main parking lot.
*The walk will continue rain or shine, except in cases of severe weather (to be determined by the Arboretum).
*Free parking after gate entry.
*Detailed information about the walk and on-site amenities will be provided in a registration confirmation letter sent directly from the Arboretum.
