On the nature experience path, children and youths get to encounter nature and enjoy the out of doors and various activities. At the activity points, the participants consider their own emotional state, try to describe the experiences they have had in the forest, become more familiar with themselves, and are freed from stress by calming their minds in pleasant location in the lap of nature.
On the nature experience path, children and youths are provided the opportunity to observe the diversity of the forest, as they are given enough time to become familiar with it and offered the chance to observe nature from different perspective and through different senses.
The goal of the nature experience path is to allow children and youths realize how spending time in nature can have a relaxing effect. Western everyday life is often hectic, distressing, and noisy. When we walk in the nature and allow ourselves time to listen to its sounds, we can leave the daily grind behind us for a while and focus on the now. Spending time in nature is a great way to relieve stress.
