The Association of Nature and Forest Therapy was honored with being one of the 10 programs profiled in this National Association of State Park Directors Health & Nature Program Partnership Toolkit which is distributed throughout the United States to State Park Directors.
Forest Therapy Guiding in State Parks should now be a little easier with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy being featured in this Health and Nature Program Partnership Toolkit. Once parks reopen, share this toolkit with your State Park Director along with your ideas for programming.
Trail Certification is also an opportunity for any Trail Certification Consultants. Certifying a trail within a State Park could allow you to guide without a permit. If your park is interested, then apply to train as a consultant and earn money certifying trails.
Hopefully this will open doors for ANFT Guides and grow awareness for the benefits of forest therapy.
