Forest Bathing at Bucks County Audubon Society

Slow Down. Awaken your senses. The forest is “for rest” Forest Bathing at Bucks County Audubon Society

Come join us on a “Forest Bathing” guided walk on Sunday, August 25th at 10AM with Sharon Lohse, RN, a forest guide trained at the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs (ANFT). Celebrate the start of summer with relaxation, rejuvenation, and refreshment as we walk through the grounds of the beautiful Bucks County Audubon Society (2877 Creamery Road, New Hope, PA 18938) and learn the art of Forest Therapy. Forest Therapy is a gentle practice that involves moving very slowly and mindfully through nature, soaking it in with all of our senses. It is a relaxing experience that connects people to natural environments through sensory-based invitations. It is not hiking in the traditional sense. An entire walk is typically 2-21/2 hours in duration and often covers no more than a quarter mile distance. In that short distance, most people experience contact with nature in a much deeper way that they ever have prior to the walk. Peel the layers of stress away and support healing by experiencing the medicine of the forest during this relaxed and mindful guided wander. We’ll do a series of relaxing and engaging activities to engage our senses, deepen nature connection, hone intuition, and connect with the natural world around us. Admission is $30/per person | Register online at www.BCAS.org

The topic is “Change your Mind” presented by Jeanne Rohach, Foundations of Success Workshops Coordinator. If a situation falls short of perfect, do you think of it as a total failure?  Do you single out a single negative detail and dwell on it exclusively?  Do you discount the compliments you receive?  Do you criticize yourself and look for faults rather than strengths?  Harmful thinking patterns and self-defeating thoughts erode self-esteem and hold us back from pursing goals.  During this workshop we will explore the forms of self-defeating thoughts as well as techniques to untwist self-destructive thinking.  Come prepared to learn a variety of ways to change your mind and gain insight into managing self-talk!  Advanced registration is required for this program.

These groups are offered free of charge and is open to the entire community.  Funding for this program is provided by grants from The Arnold A. Schwartz Foundation, Affinity Federal Credit Union and Magyar Bank.

Rural Awareness Talk: All About Bees

Rural Awareness Talk Sept. 5

Cites Many Benefits of Bees

Why Are Bees Important to Our Ecosystem?  Come hear the whole story of bees, from the 1700s to present days, from Eastern Apicultural Society Master Beekeeper Bob Kloss, on Thursday September 5 at Rutgers’ Snyder Research Farm, 140 Locust Grove Road, Pittstown, NJ. The hour-long program sponsored by Rural Awareness, Inc. is free and starts at 7:30 pm.  No reservations are required.

Kloss will present an interactive program about NJ beekeeping and its history. Guests will observe a hive containing live bees while learning about the different honey bee castes and their duties in the hive. A special treat will be tasting different types of honey and seeing a number of products from the hive, like candles, lip balm, hand cream, beeswax wraps, and more.

Bob Kloss maintains 15-20 colonies of bees at his home in Readington Township and keeps another 5-10 colonies at a local county park to educate new beekeepers and help them meet the challenges of keeping bees today. A former president of the Northwest New Jersey Beekeepers Association, he now serves the group as publicity and promotion chair, seeking to educate the public about the importance of honey bees and beekeeping. 

Kloss spent a 30-year career in the pharmaceutical industry with GlaxoSmithKline where he held several positions. He studied animal behavior and earned a BS degree in Psychobiology at Albright College, Reading, PA.  He also holds an MS degree in Environmental Science from Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA.

The next speaker, and last in this year’s series, is environmentalist Hal Benz on the subject of climate change on November 7.

Rural Awareness is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the rich history and rural character of Franklin Township in Hunterdon County.

The Friends of the Delaware Canal: Pennsylvania’s Native Plants Presentation

Pennsylvania’s native plants benefit people, wildlife and the land.  Find out about them at a presentation hosted by The Friends of the Delaware Canal on Thursday, September 12, 2019.  The event will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Old Library by Lake Afton, 46 West Afton Avenue, Yardley, PA.

Kelly Sitch, an ecologist with the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources - Bureau of Forestry, will share an illustrated program about Pennsylvania’s native plant species. As well as providing the basics, she will tell how they can be threatened, what the Commonwealth is doing to manage and protect them, and what the public can do to help conserve them.

Kelly will be joined by Kristi Allen, the coordinator for the Pennsylvania Plant Conservation Network (PPCN ).  The PPCN is a new statewide program that coordinates conservation efforts of native plants by working with communities to promote stewardship.

Pennsylvania is home to about 3000 plant species, Two-thirds of these are considered native because they have adapted to the local environment and can exist without direct or indirect human intervention. The use of native plants in the landscape can save time, money, water, and provide vital habitat for birds and other wildlife. 

There is no charge for this presentation, and registration is not required. Donations are gratefully accepted and go towards Canal improvement efforts.

 

The Friends of the Delaware Canal is an independent, not-for-profit organization working to restore, preserve, and improve the Delaware Canal and its surroundings.  Its primary goals are to ensure that the Canal is fully watered from Easton to Bristol and that the towpath trail is useable over its entire length.

MWA: The Occasional Nature Warrior

The Occasional Nature Warrior

Saturday, September 14th, 9am-4pm, (rain date September 15th), MWA River Resource Center, 10 Maple Ave, Asbury, $45

Open to anyone with reasonable physical capabilities for walking in nature.

If we called it “wilderness skills” you wouldn’t come because you probably live in NJ and “wilderness” to you is Pennsylvania. But wilderness survival skills can be relevant to anyone visiting our beautiful parks and preserves, many of which are unattended and have large expanses of remote forested areas. We can’t make you experts at survival in a day, but in this camp, you’ll get some useful suburban survival information (like the ubiquitous backyard plant that treats a bee sting or how to keep calm when you think you’re lost). We won’t ask you to eat bugs, but we will treat you to a campfire lunch -- just as soon as you are able to build that fire without a match! You’ve all heard not to stand under a tree in a lightning storm, but what if you’re in the woods when one blows in? What kind of things can you do to signal for help? Could you purify some water for drinking without a device or pill? The scary ticks will still be in the woods, but at the end of this camp, you should have more confidence going deeper into our forested wilds.

MWA Geocaching Camp

MWA Geocaching Camp

Join MWA on Saturday, July 27th for a one-day Geocaching camp. Geocaching uses your smartphone to find ‘caches’ with small prizes that have been hidden in nature. This camp is particularly family-friendly, offering a way to engage your kids in the natural world through a fun, shared activity. You’ll learn the basics at the River Resource Center in Asbury and then carpool with us to an established caching site in Warren Glen. There are more than 3 million registered geocaches hidden in more than 190 countries, and our camp leader, Brian Lubbert, has found over 6,000 geocaches in 40 countries and hidden over 200 geocaches himself. He has used his expertise in GPS technology to hike the highest 35 peaks in the Catskills including summits which requires GPS and orienteering skills to safely navigate severe terrain. There will never be a better opportunity to try out geocaching!

Class size limited. $45. Register by calling 908-537-7060.
