CSU, Chico Ecological Reserve’s Forest Therapy for Community Recovery project

SRWP is participating in the Forest Therapy for Community Recovery project.  This amazing project will aim to help individuals directly affected by the Camp Fire to recover from trauma and restore health and wellness. It is a collaborative effort with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs (ANFTGP) to train 15 local mental health providers, outdoor educators, and other health and wellness service providers to become forest therapy guides. Upon completion of their certification and required forest therapy sessions, local professionals will possess the tools and experience required to facilitate healing through forest therapy into the future.
