This year’s ParkRx Day is focused on engaging and thanking health care providers for bringing their patients outdoors for better health.
We invite you to join us for National ParkRx Day!,
National ParkRx Day is a national celebration promoting the growing movement of prescribing parks and nature to patients to improve human health. Every year, it falls on the last Sunday of National Park Week. Additionally, National ParkRx Day encourages everyone to start seeing visits to parks and public lands as very important parts of their health. In 2015, the U.S. Surgeon General released a call to action to promote walking and walkable communities. National ParkRx Day builds on this call to action and provides citizens with parks and green spaces to promote public health.
This will be a time for you to unplug, slow down and de-stress from your daily routine. Follow your Certified Nature And Forest Therapy Guide, Duncan Murdoch, through a series of sensory connection invitations to practice Forest Bathing and a new level of Nature Mindfulness. A hot, locally foraged tea will be served in the forest to complete the experience.
Get your tickets to reserve a spot and we’ll see you there!
About the Refuge:
The Charlotte Park and Wildlife Refuge is 290 acres of open meadows, active agricultural fields, forests, and trails with views of Lake Champlain, the Green Mountains, and the Adirondacks. Native plants and animals make this scenic part of Charlotte their home. All are welcome to walk or ski on all trails and ride horses on the gravel ones. Biking is prohibited. Also keep in mind that this is a wildlife refuge, so dogs are not allowed!
