National Tree Day
Warrandyte State Park
Join Dr Belinda Christie and the Wilderness Yoga crew in celebration and community for a morning of reconnection. A gentle walk* will guide us to the tranquil Yarra River, for meditation, mindfulness, and ‘re-wilding’ practices, underneath sweeping gums. We will explore the wisdom of the season, bushfoods, and the river ecosystem, and see first-hand the glorious wild that previous community plantings have helped to restore. In partnership with National Tree Day, and the Friends of Warrandyte State Park, we will join a mindful community planting, and help continue the legacy of our river-side kin.
We will leave feeling energised, connected, and empowered. Join us, and perhaps a kangaroo or two, in a celebration of our wild places.
When: 9.15am ~ 1.00pm, Sunday 28th July

* General level walking on well-made trails. Uneven surfaces are present (rocks, tree roots, leaf litter etc). Slippery surfaces at times, particularly after rain.
Note: This is not a "walk in the park" :) As with all hikes in wild places, the walking trails and planting area will of course be unpaved, with plentiful uneven ground, rough, slippery and undulating surfaces. This is the wild after all! If you have any concerns about the trail, or any injuries or illnesses which you'd like to discuss, please feel free to contact us (there is also a place to provide this info during online registration).
