Forest Bathing at Rookery Bay
April 22, 2023
Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center
To celebrate Earth Day, a forest bathing walk will be offered from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 22 along the Snail Trail at the Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center, 300 Tower Road, Naples.
Forest bathing is a slow, guided sensory walk similar to a wellness experience held in nature. Participants use their curiosity and senses to connect with nature and themselves.
Forest bathing has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, and to improve immune function.
The guide for the April 22 walk was trained by the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy.
The cost is $50 per person, with a 10% discount for Friends of Rookery Bay members, and includes admission to the center. Space is limited. Registration is open to ages 16 and older at rookerybay.org or by calling 239-530-5972.
