The medicine of being in the forestShinrin-yoku is a term that means “taking in the forest atmosphere” or “forest bathing.” Featured in Oprah Magazine, the practice was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese and Korean medicine. This is a 1.5-mile walk on easy terrain. Cost is $20. To RSVP go to shinrin-yoku.org. Upcoming dates (all from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) are Nov. 6, 11, 14, and 22.
Rebuild trails at SugarloafOn Nov. 2, from 9 a.m. to around 1 p.m. volunteers are needed to continue rebuilding Lower Bald Mountain Trail, just above the parking lot. Meet Sonoma Trails Council staff at 9 a.m. at the day use parking area on the left just past the entry kiosk (tell them you are a volunteer for trail work). Look for the white Trails Council tool trailer. The Trails Council will provide parking passes, tools, and Clif bars with beverages afterwards.
Bring gloves, a hat and water that you can take with you while working, and wear long pants, boots or sturdy shoes and sunscreen (or rain gear, depending on conditions). Heavy rain cancels. No experience necessary. In order to make sure there are enough tools and beverages, please reply to email@example.com if you plan to attend.
