Dakin Humane Society wants to inspire you to get moving this May with our #ByMySide 31-Day Activity Challenge. We encourage you to bring your furry companion along, or get active in their honor. That’s right, “we Dakin Dare you!” Whether you plan to walk, run, bike ride, or snuggle your cat (yes, that's an activity!) you'll be making a difference for animals. By participating you will be part of a virtual movement of animal lovers supporting health and happiness together while raising critical funds to support the animals and programs of Dakin.

Come experience a guided Forest therapy walk with Todd Lynch, certified ANFT guide. Forest and Nature Therapy offers us the opportunity to slow down. It re-aligns our rhythms with the landscape, allowing our senses a respite from everyday demands and uncertainties. It’s a chance to remember our connections to nature and the joyful relationships that await us outside. This guided experience is not a hike or naturalist adventure, but an opportunity to slow down and allow our bodies to engage all of our senses. Please note that this is not “therapy” as commonly denoted in our culture, but an offering of a therapeutic way to be in nature. Guides are not trained clinicians; they hold the space to let the forest be the “therapist”.
