Registration required (adults) Experience the health and wellness benefits of Shinrin-Yoku, the Japanese practice of experiencing the forest and its health benefits. Commonly know as "forest bathing," this health practice has been growing since the 1980's in Japan and more recently in the U.S. Forest bathing is the immersion into nature by slowing down and being mindful experiencing all of one's senses and the interconnection with natural environment. This relaxing walk around the Discovery Center grounds is approximately 2.5 hrs. and is being offered by Michael Beezhold, certified forest therapy guide. For more information on the practice visit or read the recent article in the February 2019 Missouri Conservationist: Good Medicine from the Great Outdoors. This program will take place rain or shine so wear appropriate clothing, bring a cushion, mat or small tripod stool to sit on and water. Kathy A Kottemann
