Wellness in the Woods

Ecosystem Preserve / Programs / Wellness in the Woods

Picture a place where you have felt calm and at peace.

Does it include nature?

For many of us, the answer is yes! We are creatures, designed to connect with creation. Research tells us that spending time outside has a variety of physical, mental, and emotional benefits...but so does our lived experience.

Whether you are a Calvin student, a Calvin employee, or a west Michigan neighbor, you are warmly invited to join us. We'll lean into to the renewing practices of prayer, group reflection, and personal observation. Hope to see you here.


  • this is a fall & spring semester offering. More details to come.
