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, Certified Guide and Practicum Mentor with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs.
