Strolls for Well-Being is a complimentary seasonal program at Bloedel Reserve that supports connection with nature through a series of 12 self-guided walks. We invite those interested in deepening their connection to nature to join, and no experience or special knowledge is needed. New participants receive a guidebook with instruction and inspiration for 12 distinct mindfulness-based walks through the Reserve. Each walk is built around a theme such as joy, awareness, or gratitude, and the walks are designed around locations within the Reserve. Participants become part of a small group that meets three times during the program, for an orientation, mid-point check-in, and closing meeting.
The meetings provide an opportunity to hear from others and share experiences. After the orientation meeting, people in the program will receive a guidebook and be ready to begin. The program is designed to be self-paced, and participants choose when and how to engage with the walks. Everyone in the program receives a complimentary 6-month membership to Bloedel Reserve, which provides Timed Ticket entrance when booked in advance.
2023 Spring Strolls for Well-Being Program occurs for 12 weeks from March 22nd through May 6th. Please sign up for one of the orientation meetings in order to be registered for the Strolls for Well-Being Program. Due to the popularity of this program, participation in the Strolls program is offered to NEW participants only.
