LivingWell NatureRx is a guided hike designed to inspire people to explore nature as a way to renew their mind, body and spirit. When people spend time in natural settings and are encouraged to “come to their senses,” they can release physical tension, find peace of mind and improve their outlook on life. It’s also a great way to meet new people and connect with others who are looking for new ways to improve their wellness.

Registration is not required.
