Mindful Nature Walk With Dr. Blanda

May 21 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

$10.00 - $12.00

Time in nature can have many health benefits especially if you become more mindful of your surroundings. Join Dr. Joe Blanda, a recently retired physician, on an introductory mindful nature walk and discussion of its benefits.

This is not a fast-paced fitness hike, but instead a slow paced 1-hour observation and mindfulness walk followed by a 30-minute conversation. You will learn how to engage your senses to better understand the therapeutic advantages of the outdoors. Tea will be served in a Zen tradition afterwards.

Conservancy Members: $10 | Non-Members: $12

Proceeds will directly support Conservancy programs and initiatives, and Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Event Location

This event will take place in the central area of the park. Directions and exact location will be emailed to you after registering. The guided walk will be on a well-established NPS trail with uneven terrain and small inclines, including one set of steps. This trail is unpaved, and is not wheelchair accessible.

COVID Safety Guidelines

At this time, while community levels of COVID-19 are low, you are not required to wear a mask at Conservancy events. We ask that you still respect personal space and understand that some individuals may choose to wear a mask for personal reasons. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID, please stay home. We will continue to monitor community levels using the CDC’s new tool and may require masks again if transmission rates go up.

***If you or someone in your group have a compromised immune system and need our staff to wear masks or use additional PPE, please contact us and we will arrange appropriate accommodations.***

Refunds will be offered in the case of cancellations due to COVID concerns.
