The Nature for Wellness Day on Sunday, April 29th was a fun and education filled day, enjoying beautiful weather, trail planning, and community at the Rio Fernando Park site. Over 100 people attended and enjoyed delicious barbecue, tree giveaways and tabling from the Taos Tree Board, Amigos Bravos, Integrative Medicine de Taos and the Field Institute of Taos. Integrative Medicine de Taos led an educational tour of medicinal plants found at Rio Fernando Park, including information on plant uses, medicinal benefits, and how to cultivate them. Event attendees received maps of the property and were asked to draw their ‘desire lines’ for trails and pathways at the park, which will be considered in the development of the park master plan. Eric Carle’s “The Tiny Seed” could be read along the existing trail as a Story Walk activity. Attendees also had the opportunity to participate in a ‘dot preference’ activity to help the master planning effort prioritize activities for the future park.
