Bucks County Audubon Society, 2877 Creamery Road in New Hope, announced the following events for August:
PA Amphibian & Reptile Survey (PARS): Fascinated with reptiles and amphibians? Join on Aug. 14, from 2 to 4 p.m., on YouTube for a herpetology presentation. Then, head to Bucks Audubon’s streams and forests to search out the slimy salamanders, slithery snakes and jump frogs during the PARS. Dress for the weather and for an outdoor walk across uneven terrain. Bring a field guide, binoculars and camera if you wish. Any experience level is welcome. Admission is free but donations are appreciated.
Guided Forest Bathing: Show your love of nature and immerse yourself in the wonder of the forest on Aug. 28, from 9 to 11:30 a.m., with Sharon Lohse, certified forest therapist. Participants will experience a series of invitations designed to allow participants to slow down, engage their senses and connect with the living world. This is a great way to reduce stress and find solace in the moss, ferns and trees that surround the creek at Bucks Audubon. After a stroll around the grounds, enjoy a tea ceremony in the Healing Garden. Dress for the weather with appropriate footwear and a mask. Sit stools will be provided. Admission is $30 per person.
