Most of us in Wild Ones know and appreciated the benefits of being in the forest.  Alison Paul, of the Conservation Foundation, will take us deeper to a physiological and psychological excercise called shinrin-yoku:  taking in the forest atmosphere.  The term emerged in Japan in the 1980's.  Its purpose?  Offer an antidote to the tech-boom burnout and to inspire people to reconnect with and protect the forests.  Be prepared to open your senses, lift your mood, and reduce stress and anxiety?
