February 13th, 7:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m. – Forest Bathing, with Jane Dobson, certified Mindful Nature Guide and founder of Mind The Forest. A decade ago, forest bathing was relatively unknown in the United States and much of the world. Today, this practice has taken hold globally, both as an essential part of our well-being and as critical to our role as caretakers of the Earth. Learn about this growing practice, its health benefits, the science behind it, its effects of fostering a sense of personal wholeness and authenticity, and techniques for developing an individual practice. This lecture will take place at SUNY New Paltz Lecture Center Room 102.

From February 6-27, 2020, the Shawangunk Ridge Biodiversity Partnership (SRBP) will present a free public lecture series, Secrets of the Shawangunks, providing information on conservation topics and biodiversity on the Shawangunk Ridge.
