The old saying that you “can’t see the forest for the trees” has never been truer.
When was the last time you went on a walk in the woods with no agenda or timeframe?
Maybe you are stuck in an office or running your kids around from activity to activity, and getting minimal time in nature. This can increase your stress level in all areas of your life.
To many, a walk in the woods has become, “How many steps and how quick did I make it?”
Reconnecting with nature increases our well-being. Research has shown that there are important positive correlations between human health, intelligence and time spent in nature.
Heartwood Preserve in Trinity wants to help by providing free, guided, nature hikes monthly.
Come and take a walk through Heartwood Preserve and let’s reconnect with nature together.
Heartwood calls them “Talk & Tours,” and they are always educational, informative, and include special subjects.
On October 26, the topic is “Reconnecting with Nature.” We will be walking from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Our special guest guide for this tour will be Mr. Mike Kell.
Mike Kell currently plays an active role in the Pasco County Birding scene. Mike is the Former Vice President and now a current Member of the West Pasco Audubon Society, and has been on the board since 2006.
Mike has identified over 260 different bird species in the wild.
He has been the Chairman of the West Pasco Audubon Bluebird committee since 2012 and a member of the Florida Bluebird Society. Mike helped with the placement of the Heartwood Preserve Bluebird boxes and maintains them monthly.
Please bring water and wear closed-toe shoes or boots, sunscreen, hat, and bug spray if you wish. An RSVP is appreciated: (727) 376-5111.
