On the 3rd Sunday of each month, tours of Wildwood open to the public and conducted by one of our informative guides. These tours are your opportunity to learn about ecoforestry, and how Wildwood is an important component in our global efforts to fight climate change.
Tours start at 1:00 pm and usually finish at 3:00 or 3:30 pm, usually depending on the size of the group and discussions.
Wildwood is the only active, demonstration ecoforest in British Columbia and one of our primary purposes is to educate all who visit about this alternative method of managing our forests.
This Restorative Forest Therapy workshop is an introduction to effective therapy techniques known to decrease physiological and psychological stress by increasing parasympathetic nervous activity. Studies show that people with chronic heart failure, poor immune response, inflammation, type II diabetes, depression and anxiety can benefit from exposure to forested environments.
Participants of this walking Forest Therapy will learn to slow down, use proper body positioning, appropriate cadence, cognitive awareness, effective breathing and a positive mind.
This introduction will give you insights to the beneficial healing abilities of a specific type of natural forest, and open you to how a more extended program of Forest Therapy can benefit you for long term health.
