Event details

Need to relax and reconnect? Join us for this simple Japanese method of being calm and quiet amongst the trees. Meet inside the museum, then walk to our forested shoreline trail. Sit and observe nature while breathing deeply to help de-stress and boost health and wellbeing. In honor of World Rivers Day, focus on the healing power of water.

Afterward, join us back at the museum for coffee or tea, continuing to ease into the morning by exploring our exhibits and gardens.
