CONSERVATION WOODS WALK SERIES
Explore the natural places just beyond your backyard at BREC Conservation Areas throughout the parish during our staff guided Conservation Woods Walk. Further off the beaten path, these walks are geared toward providing an interactive experience at the Conservation areas and trails throughout the parish to make these special natural spaces more familiar. Though open to both novices and experts alike, these walks are more primitive and rigorous than your regular walk in
the park. Preregistration is required and all children must be accompanied by adults.

REVIVE YOUR MIND NATURE HIKE
Forest bathing, Nature Rx, Ecotherapy...it’s been called many things but the message is the same, NATURE is good for you! If life has you spinning and you feel out of balance this is the hike for you. We will be using time in nature to slow down and take a breakthrough mindful, purposeful observation. We will be hiking off the beaten path at one of BREC's Conservation Areas using the outdoors as a window to relaxation and a
free mind. Join us to get a well-deserved dose of nature at its finest. This program is geared towards adults, but participants ages 13 and older are welcome to attend with their parent.
