Introduction to Forest Bathing at Killens Pond

This one-hour Introduction to Forest Bathing will be a condensed version of the longer 2 or 3 hour guided nature and forest therapy walks. The walk will provide a taste of the healing and wellness benefits of forest bathing. We will move slowly and cover a short distance, connecting to nature with an open heart and with our senses through a series of guided, sensory invitations. Research has shown that 'bathing in the environment of the forest' has many positive health benefits. The process of re-remembering and re-knowing our bodily connection to nature can lead to reduced stress, a decrease in blood pressure, a reduction in anxiety & depression and an increased feeling of comfort and calm. This program will be led by Jane M. Wandless, ANFT Certified Nature & Forest Therapy Guide. Space is limited, pre-registration is required. Call 302-284-4299 or email DNREC_KPSPNatureCenter@delaware.gov to register.

Sunset River Cruise at Fort Delaware

Join us for an hour and a half-long cruise up the Delaware River onboard the Delafort Ferry to experience the unique natural and historical resources along the Delaware River. Participants will get the chance to view historic Fort Delaware and Pea Patch Island. Being on the river gives a very enlightening perspective to how Fort Delaware, Fort Mott and Fort DuPont worked together to protect the river passage to Wilmington and Philadelphia from enemy navies. In addition, Pea Patch Island is home to an impressive heronry, so we should see a wide variety of wading birds, and perhaps some osprey and bald eagles. This cruise offers a beautiful view of the setting sun.
