Join us for a free nature and forest therapy walk through Springbrook Nature Center, led by ANFT Certified Guide Will Wanhala of Walk Weird in collaboration with Silvae Spiritus. Located in Fridley, Minnesota, 10 minutes north of downtown Minneapolis and 20 minutes north of downtown St. Paul, Springbrook Nature Center sits on 127 acres of native prairies, oak and aspen forests, oak savannas, and extensive wetlands with trails and boardwalks throughout. An area long-inhabited and tended by the Dakota and Ojibwe people before colonization, this land and water is presently managed and tended by the Springbrook Nature Center Foundation and the City of Fridley (and has no affiliation nor partnership with Silvae Spiritus nor Walk Weird).
The guided Forest Bathing walk will be less than 1.5 miles round-trip on easy terrain with paved and accessible trails. We will move very slowly, honor each others’ space and silence outside of periodic sharing circles, and conclude the walk with tea and light snacks.
*We recommend participants arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of our walk and plan to stay through the scheduled duration. Due to the guided nature of Forest Bathing, we are unable to accommodate late attendance.
*There is a public restroom on-site, next to the parking area.
*The walk will continue rain or shine, except in cases of severe weather. If cancellation is required due to severe weather, we will notify you one hour prior to the walk start. You may choose to have your registration changed to another published walk date, receive a full refund, or donate your ticket price to the Silvae Spiritus scholarship fund.
*Free parking next to meeting location.
*Detailed information about the walk, what to bring, and on-site amenities will be provided in a registration confirmation letter.
