Nature and Forest Therapy Guides




The Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs has created this members only website to support your forest therapy guiding practice and business. These resources are offered as both an expression of gratitude to you for embarking on this journey with us to connect people with nature, themselves, and the more than human world and as a means for us all to remain connected in community.

We invite you to share what you notice or don't notice. Please inform us how we can make this website best support you by emailing

Community Tending Zoom Calls

As a measure of tending to our community, ANFT is planning to host 2-4 Zoom calls per month, facilitated by trainers and mentors, that are open to any guides who wish to join. It isn't really about Forest Therapy, it's more about tending community, listening, and offering emotional support. In a time of social distancing, it's easy to succumb to feelings of isolation, apathy and numbness, and we hope that this humble offering may help alleviate these feelings.
