About the Event

Have you ever been creek walking? It's a great way to spend time outdoors even when the Iowa summer heat is intense. Enjoy the cooling and calming medicine of the water while engaging with your senses on this creek romp and Forest Bathing experience. 

Please dress for getting wet and wear shoes that you can walk in the creek with. Ages 10 and up are welcome. 

Hats, insect repellant and water bottles are also recommended. Meet at the Arboretum Parking Lot. Turn left (West) onto Worcester Rd off of Stoney Point Rd, GPS and Google Maps are not correct. 

Forest bathing supports mental health and a healthy immune system. Together we will bathe in the medicine of the land.

Guided  by Emelia Sautter, Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide, foundress  of Good Medicine, Nature and Forest Therapy Practice in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.


Sliding scale fee: $25 - $0, based upon your access to resources.

Backyard Abundance members receive a 10% discount.

We need a minimum of 4 attendees to host the class. Please invite friends and family to ensure the event happens as scheduled. We would love to meet your loved ones.
