His AV programs have aired on regional PBS stations, and he was interviewed for the May 2008 national PBS special, 'The Adirondacks'. His photo techniques book, The Landscape Photography Field Guide (2011 Focal Press), is a comprehensive handbook about landscape photography techniques. Photographing the Adirondacks (2013 Countryman Press), is a regional guidebook to more than 200 photo locations throughout the Adirondack Park.

Forest Bathing

You already enjoy being in nature. Discover how Forest Bathing can make your experience richer, deeper and fuller. Let us take you on a relaxing one hour eco-trip, and invite you, through a series of brief ever-changing activities, to open yourself to all the sights, sounds, smells and textures of an Adirondack forest. Let yourself be guided through a deep sensory immersion.

Forest Bathing, also called Shinrin-Yoku, originated in Japan in the early 1980s, in an effort to promote greater health among the mainly urban Japanese population. More than two decades of research studies in Japan, the US and abroad have found that Forest Bathing can lower blood pressure and heart rate, boost our immune system as well as reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol.

Certified Forest Therapy Guide Helene Gibbens will lead you on this relaxing and rejuvenating journey. Take a pause from your busy life and reconnect with yourself and with the natural world.More information about Forest Bathing and Helene can be found at
