CONSERVANCY DAY: WONDER OUTSIDE THE LINES WITH COLLEEN ROBINSON
July 15 @ 6:30 PM - 7:30 PMFree
Join Colleen Robinson from Nature’s Good Company, LLC for a guided mindful outdoor experience. We will gently explore the benefits of getting outside and going within. Mindful movement and guided sensory awareness in nature is proven to reduce stress hormones in our bodies, decrease blood pressure, and improve immune response. Nature’s impacts don’t stop with each of us though. When we embody the felt sense of a reawakened connection to the natural world, we broaden our perspectives, have more capacity for compassion and creativity, care better for our communities, and become more effective environmental stewards. Come on more than a nature hike…let yourself be guided.
Colleen was born and raised in Madison, WI on land that is in deep relationship with Ho-Chunk people. An environmental educator by training, Colleen was the education program coordinator for the Friends for 14 years, ran forest health program communications at the WI DNR for 10 years, and now is Communications Manager for the national non-profit Forest Stewards Guild. She’s held a life-long core value of helping people meaningfully connect with and acknowledge their connection with nature. Though her career has been aligned with that core value, something has always been missing. Her new business fills the gap and Colleen feels called to guide for the sake of the environment, herself, everyone she loves, and everyone sharing this planet.
Meeting Place: Dane County parking lot on 4864 Pheasant Branch Road MAP.
