Have you heard about Shinrin-yoku or Forest bathing? Here is an opportunity to take a walk and experience the practice for yourself as part of California State Parks Week's "Nourish Your Health & Well-Being" Day. Learn techniques to maximize the health benefits and stress reducing qualities of this walking practice. Shinrin-yoku originated in Japan and is gaining popularity in the United States for its documented health benefits.

A centering and calming restorative practice, it promotes balance and restored vitality through a quality of presence and heightened sensory awareness. Sugarloaf Ridge State Park hosts a Forest Therapy Series as part of its ParkRx Program the 4th Sunday of each month. These walks are led by certified Association of Nature and Forest Therapy (ANFT) practitioners. Visit for more info about this practice.

Our meeting point will be the White Barn. Wear comfortable shoes, bring water, layers, and if desired, a snack. The event, usually $20 or free with a ParkRx, is free but requires registration, as space is very limited. Not recommended for children under 12. Parking fees apply. 

California State Parks Week (June 14-18) is presented by California State Parks, Save the Redwoods League, Parks California and the California State Parks Foundation. Through special community events and in-person and virtual programming, this annual event celebrates California’s 280 state parks and the people who visit and help protect these iconic places.
