Cool Down with High Summer Forest Bathing

  • US National Arboretum 2400 R Street Northeast Washington, DC, 20002 United States (map)

The only thing worse than winter cabin fever is summer cabin fever. But our tree friends have the gift of shade to offer us. Join us in Fern Valley at the US National Arboretum, where it’s usually 15-20 degrees cooler than the city. Allow yourself time to slow down, explore, and wander without having anything to do, anywhere to go, or any way you need to better yourself. Daytime forest bathing is a sensory immersion calling us back to nature and our own nature. Offering our tender attention to the more-than-human world brings us back into a reciprocal relationship where we know deep in our bones that our wellness cannot exist without the wellness of the Earth.
