Forest Therapy Walk with Dr. Trey Wilson

Saturday, June 8
9 to 11 a.m.

Join Dr. Trey Wilson for a guided forest therapy experience at the Jacksonville Arboretum & Botanical Gardens, featuring gardens and trails to help you find peace and connect with nature.

Demonstrated in this Discovering Nature Nearby program, forest therapy is an effective and scientifically tested way to improve physical, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being. A certified guide will allow the healing powers of the forest to help you feel clear, grounded, and balanced. The forest is the therapist, and the guide opens the doors. It is not a nature walk or hike. It is a slow walk in which you decide what slow means for you.

Tickets are $10 per person. Purchase today through the link below.
