SHIFT encourages healthy outdoor lifestyles and had several walking tours with leading medical professionals about prescribing recreation to align with 2018’s of Nature Rx. A guided walk in Bridger-Teton National Forest was used as an example of a successful public lands/public health trail model on both municipal and federal lands that was free to the public. One of the afternoons were dedicated to networking outside on the trail with local non-profits leadings attendees as well as hired local guided trips if desired. Most notably were the Walk with a Doc session led by Dr. David Sabgir— who started the movement in 2005 which has exploded to 400 chapters—as well as the Shinrin-yoku tour, which is a Japanese term that means “taking in the forest atmosphere” or “forest therapy.”
