Columbia Springs offers a variety of workshops on sustainable living, ecology, and other environmental topics led by local experts in the Clark County area.

Forest Therapy Workshop with Elizabeth Koch at Columbia Spring

Forest Therapy

Immerse yourself in a guided Forest Therapy Workshop! The smell of western red cedar, the sounds of wind, and the crunch of maple leaves below your feet. Experience a series of slow, mindful activities designed to open and engage the senses and connect you with nature in a way that invites healing interactions.


This relaxing experience is hosted entirely outdoors, rain or shine. We will engage in a mile of slow walking on earthen trails and non-vigorous activity. Please arrive as scent free as possible to maximize the ability of all participants to appreciate the amazing aromas of the forest.
