Experience the restorative powers of nature and join us for Strolls for Well-Being, a free 10-week program offered at Bloedel Reserve. If not already a member, participants are given a temporary membership to allow them unlimited access to the gardens during the program.

If you’ve ever used nature to calm your mind or heart, then you’ve experienced the underlying basis of the program. This self-guided tour uses the gardens of Bloedel as a place for inspiration and reflection. With a workbook in hand, participants explore themes such as forgiveness, gratitude and awareness.

The program is predominately self-guided and participants come on their own time to partake in the 12 different walks. They also are asked to take part in three check-in meetings, overseen by two facilitators. These loosely-structured meetings provide a time for people to share about their Strolls experiences and learn about the positive effect nature has on the human psyche.

To fulfill the requirements of the program, we ask that participants attend all three of the check-in meetings and complete all necessary paperwork. See the website, link below for registration and more information.
