Approximate Total Miles

Enjoy the benefits of being out in nature on this moderately-paced hike while learning how to improve your health. You'll explore interconnections within the natural world while deepening your own connection to nature. Docent naturalists Catherine Crawford-Swent, Ann McCarty, and Marie Faust Evitt will use simple mindfulness and qigong practices, and discuss stress reduction. The first mindfulness exercise will be overlooking a valley view where the North American and Pacific tectonic plates meet. Join in and take a step toward improving your health and wellbeing. Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after November 25 and close December 8 at 2:00 p.m.
