Many ANFT-trained Guides are offering virtual forest therapy walks during this time when most of us have been ordered to shelter-in-place.
Most virtual forest therapy walks will be using Zoom.

You can join using a phone or internet connection. To find the walk in your timezone, click here to access World Time Buddy.
For those able to be outside, we suggest that you dress appropriate for the weather and maybe a little warmer than usual since you will be moving slowly and possibly sitting on the ground. Having a small mat, bag, or cushion to sit on can also be nice.
For those of you inside, may we suggest sitting near a plant(s) and/or a window with a view outside, if possible. Guides will be sharing their view, so you can "experience" the outdoors through your screen as well.
Please practice Group Etiquette by keeping your phone on mute unless invited to share. In the bottom left corner of your screen, there is a little microphone. Click on it to mute or unmute yourself.
In order to ensure the best experience for everyone, please commit to fully participating while you are on the group call and refrain from answering texts or emails.
