Summer Camp Opens May 26!

Nature camp will open as planned at the Dunwoody Nature Center! While campers will notice some changed circumstances as we strictly comply with all the new restrictions and safety guidelines announced by the State and City they will experience the joy and beauty of nature as always.

See our website for full details and to register for available spots.

Forest Bathing Series

As the world starts to re-open, take the time to re-connect with nature in one of our socially distanced, professionally guided Forest Bathing Sessions.

Forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku, is a Japanese form of nature therapy that is designed to connect you with nature. The word, “bathing,” refers to the idea of absorbing your natural surroundings using all of the senses, rather than anything to do with water. Forest bathing aims to bring healing through connection to nature and trees. The practice is said to enhance well-being, reduce stress and restore calm.

Each session is led by a Certified Forest Therapy Guide.

Select the session that works best for you:

Tuesday, May 19 1:00 – 4:00 PM
Thursday, May 21 5:00 – 8:00 PM
Saturday, May 23 9:00 AM – noon
Sunday, June 7 9:00 AM – noon

Who: Adults 18+

Cost: $45 per session (Members use discount code FBMEM10 for a $10 discount)

Additional Info: Event will be outdoors, rain or shine. Registration is required and limited to nine participants per session. Wear walking shoes and bring a reusable water bottle and snack if desired.
