March 19 at 7pm AKST: Health and Wellness Benefits of Spending Time in Nature
Several scientific studies have suggested that spending time in nature can have significant physical and mental health benefits. During her talk, Linda Krueger will tease apart some of these studies and discuss the practice of shinrinyoku, or forest bathing, as a way to slow down, become present, and experience nature using all of the senses. Linda is a certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide through the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy and is currently the only certified guide in Alaska.
