Kojo sits down with three young organizers to talk about climate activism and this week's D.C. Climate Strike.
While “forest bathing” is a relatively new movement in the United States, the Japanese practice of immersing oneself in nature has long been valued in many communities. It’s becoming more popular in the Washington, D.C. region, which has many green spaces despite its urban density.
From wellness trends to longstanding traditions, we’ll talk about our connection to nature, our favorite hikes, trails and parks, and the challenges to outdoor accessibility.
- Melanie Choukas-Bradley Author, "The Joy of Forest Bathing: Reconnect with Wild Places & Rejuvenate Your Life;" "City of Trees" and "A Year in Rock Creek Park;" Naturalist with the Audubon Naturalist Society and Smithsonian Associates, along with other organizations.
