Abstract

Urbanization correlates to mental and physical distress. To address this issue, we have implemented a self-guided forest bathing experience within Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve (SER). We conducted interviews, surveys, pilot testing, and gathered observational data. Our results enabled us to provide a list of trail, facility and forest bathing experience improvements with focus on visitor satisfaction. Our project will help SER to increase visitor satisfaction throughout the reserve and provide a unique outlet to connect with nature and de- stress.
