What we're about

Do you want to reconnect to nature in a deep and meaningful way? Do you feel like you spend way too much time inside and on screens? Nature Worx's guided, experiential, mindfulness-based saunters are the antidote to the health pitfalls that occur when we are disconnected from the natural world. Humans have spent the majority of our species' lifespan in close contact with the "more than human world"; we have just recently come inside for the majority of our days, and the majority of our population now lives in urban environments with limited access to nature.

At Nature Worx, we seek out the tremendous green spaces in Baltimore that residents can utilize to improve their body, mind and spirit by "coming home" to nature. Nature Worx's guides provide unique, introductory activities that engage all 5 senses (plus some bonus senses like sense of wonder, sense of awe, and sense of humor!) Our participants leave feeling more peaceful and balanced. Our saunters are intended for adults over 18. The activities we'll do on our walk are things that you can do anywhere, anytime, to come back to consciousness. Every breath is an exchange with the plants around you; every moving blood cell mirrors the fungal network of trees. Let us show you that you are not one person standing alone on this planet, you are a natural being deeply connected to all things! Saunter with us and see!

July Blue Sky

Needs a location

Imagine your thoughts are like clouds that are obscuring a clear, blue sky. Can you add some wind to blow them away, leaving your mind clear, calm and beautiful? If that sounds impossible, let Nature Worx guide you!

Saunter with us at the beautiful Masonville Cove campus, see Baltimore's first pair of nesting bald eagles, learn about the "comeback kid" environment and the power of individuals and local government to save our planet!
We will meet in front of the Visitors Center. Our walk will begin at 10AM sharp so if you're going to arrive late please contact Phil at[masked]
Our saunter will take about an hour, with time on either end to do group introductions and a reflection. On our walk your guides will invite you to pause and explore the "more than human world" in a variety of ways. We blend elements of mindfulness, meditation, 5 senses exploration, art, and play to connect to nature for body, mind and spirit health benefits!
We will be walking the trails around Masonville Cove, which includes unpaved, and uneven terrain. Please be sure you are physically able to participate and are wearing athletic shoes, dressed appropriately for the weather, have applied sunscreen and bug spray as preferred, and have a water bottle.

We believe nature should be accessible to everyone, regardless of economic status. If you feel compelled, please visit our website www.natureworx.org to make a donation! Thank you!
We will go out, rain or shine! The only elements that will make us cancel a session are lightening, extreme winds, extreme heat or cold. Rain date: Saturday, July 9th 10-11:30 AM. You'll be notified in this group and by email no later than 7AM the morning of the walk

Nature Connection as a Resource for Healing
