Forest Therapy Walks
Immerse yourself in nature and experience the healing effects of forest therapy or Shinrin-Yoku (Japanese for forest bathing). The walk is not about the destination, but instead the awakening of your senses to the natural environment around you. Reconnect with nature during these mindful walks with a certified Forest Therapy guide.
The walk is entirely outdoors. Be prepared to walk over uneven terrain. Wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes. We will follow CDC guidelines and practice social distancing . The forest therapy guide is bilingual so the program can be experienced in Spanish or English. Participants must be 12 years and older. Minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian.

IMAGINE BEING STUCK IN A TIME LOOP – WAKING UP AND REALIZING YOU’RE LIVING THE SAME DAY OVER-AND-OVER-AND-OVER-AND-OVER AGAIN?
If you’re cynical weatherman Phil Connors, it’s a never-ending nightmare to be stuck in a small hick town whose biggest claim to fame is meteorologist groundhog Punxsutawney Phil. What sounds like an outlandish fantasy becomes an insightful look at discovering what you’re capable of when you finally find the selfless person within, when you lower your defenses and make the most of each day. Imagine being stuck in a time loop – wait, did we already say this?
Based on the classic Bill Murray comedy, Groundhog Day: The Musical is full of “fertile and feverish theatrical imagination,” The New York Times raved. Nominated for 7 Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score, Paramount Theatre is beyond proud to present the Midwest regional premiere of this uproariously funny, surprisingly touching and simply inspirational musical comedy.
Lunch includes Garden Salad, Rolls & Butter, Roasted Pork with Apple Au Jus on the side, Roasted Red Potatoes, Broccoli, and Cookies/Brownies. Non-alcoholic beverages are included, cash bar is available.
