On-a-Roll in Your Schoolyard
Program Outline

Forest therapy is an emerging practice in preventative health care that utilizes intentional experiences in a living forest to generate health benefits. The practice also supports clearer intuition, increased energy, and an increased capacity to communicate with the land and its species. On a short guided hike through the Ganaraska Forest, students will complete a number of place-based reflective exercises that will allow them to connect to the landscape on a deeper level. The students will be challenged to use this understanding to create an artefact that encapsulates their experiences in the forest.
