Ijams Nature Center: Forest Bathing Workshop

Category: Classes, workshops, Health, wellness and Science, nature

Nov 3, 6-8 PM

Spend a relaxing two hours connecting with nature with ANFT-trained forest therapy guide Sarah Schortz at the Ijams Homesite.

Everyone knows that being in nature is good for our wellbeing, but often we don't know how to slow down and just BE to receive all the healing, restorative gifts that nature has to offer. During this two-hour, immersive experience, you will be guided through a series of relaxing activities designed to help you slow down, and mindfully engage with and explore the natural world through your senses while you discover new ways of being in and with nature. Forest bathing is different from educational nature programs in that the purpose is not to learn any new information, but to experience and connect with nature. Much like you would not read a book or study facts about a new friend, forest bathing facilitates a way of deeper knowing and understanding the natural world. This event is NOT a hike and involves very minimal walking. Most of the time will be spent together in the same area near the Miller Building. During the event, participants will alternate between gathering as a group and wandering about exploring on their own with suggested prompts provided by your guide. The purpose of this event is to create a space for you to have a meaningful, restorative experience in nature. All activities offered are optional for you to participate in or adapt as you like.

You may wish to bring a journal, something to write with, water, and a snack. You may also wish to bring a blanket or small outdoor chair if you prefer not to sit on the ground. Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes that you do not mind getting a bit of dirt on, and bring a raincoat if it's drizzly.

Tickets are $30 per person and must be purchased prior to the event.

Ijams Nature Center, 2915 Island Home Ave, Knoxville, TN 37920. Visitor Center open daily 10-6; grounds and trails open daily from 8 AM - dusk. Information: 865-577-4717, www.ijams.org

UT Arboretum Society: Who's That Hooting? Virtual Program

Category: Free event, Lecture, discussion, panel, Science, nature and Virtual

Join local naturalist Stephen Lyn Bales as we learn about the mysteries of owls at the UT Arboretum Society’s First Thursday Nature Supper Club for November. Being nocturnal, owls are active when we are asleep and hidden during our daylight hours. We often hear them hooting in the darkness but do not know what type of owl it is or where it is located. Learn all about the owls of East Tennessee and perhaps what's hooting in your woods! You provide your own stay-at-home supper, and we provide the nature as Stephen Lyn teaches us about these fascinating creatures.

Due to scheduling issues, the program for November 3rd is pre-recorded and the recording will be sent to all who register. The program is free and closed captioning is available, but registration is required to receive the recording. Register at www.utarboretumsociety.org. Please contact UT Arboretum Education Coordinator, Michelle Campanis, at mcampani@utk.edu with any questions or registration issues.

To contact Stephen Lyn Bales or buy one of his UT Press books, email him at hellostephenlyn@gmail.com

Union Ave Books: An Author Event featuring Jack Russell

  • November 3, 2022

Category: Free event, Lecture, discussion, panel and Literature, reading, writing

Union Ave Books is excited to partner with author Jack Russell to promote his book FOX WORLD, while also raising money for Young-Williams Animal Center. A portion of all book sales will be donated to Young-Williams, and a representative will be attending to share information about this wonderful organization!

This event will take place on Thursday, November 3rd at 6:30 pm in our store.

Please reserve your free ticket here.
https://www.unionavebooks.com/event/113-author-event-featuring-jack-russell

Jack Russell wrote Fox World after suffering sudden cardiac arrest and undergoing several heart procedures to save his life. To heal, he sought the calm refuge of a nearby forest in which to walk and relax, and there, he reunited with an aging red fox that he saved as a pup. Fox World is based on true events and was composed while he and his co-narrator, Mr. Fox, walked daily for a year.

​Previously, Jack was a sales executive and traveled North America and Europe for three decades to assist Fortune 1000 companies with building distribution channels, developing new products, and launching start-ups. He lives in Lake Frederick, Virginia with his wife, Susan, and their Jack Russell terrier, Milo. Along with lobbying for Mr. Fox’s forest to be declared a nature preserve, Jack and Susan enjoy giving freedom rides to shelter dogs. He is a beginner at photography, an ever-learning birdwatcher, a football fan when Green Bay and University of Tennessee are on television, and an enthusiastic golfer of diminishing skills.

Young-Williams Animal Center began as the Knoxville/Knox County Animal Welfare Center that opened in January 2001. At Young-Williams Animal Center, their mission is to lead the community to end pet homelessness, promote animal welfare and enhance the human-animal bond.
