Clermont and Construction
Saturday, May 21, 2022 01:00 PM
Clermont State Historic Site
Since the 1730s, everyone who has lived or worked at Clermont has left their mark on the mansion. Over nearly 300 years, Clermont has been rebuilt after a fire, had wings added, had its flat roof pitched, had porches added and torn off, and has been repainted hundreds of times! Join Educator Emily Robinson for a presentation about Clermont's construction history, from the first generations of the Livingston family to today. This program will be hosted at the Visitor Center.

Spring Forest Bathing Walk
Saturday, June 4, 2022 01:00 PM
Clermont State Historic Site
Join Cultured Forest for an hour of guided Spring Forest Bathing at Clermont State Historic Site. This session will be led by our Founder Brooke Mellen who you may have seen in Vogue and WSJ Magazine. She trained in Forest Medicine with Dr. Li in Japan. Forest Bathing is based on a Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku that involves connecting with nature by "Bathing in the Forest Atmosphere". Studies show time in nature lowers blood pressure, boosts immunity and reduces stress. In this activity, you will indulge with fellow nature lovers in relaxing mindfulness and self-care in a guided outdoor class. Plan to see some of the most peaceful areas of the park, while learning activities that allow you to better connect with yourself and the outdoors. Leave feeling centered and more at peace. Learn how to bring Mindfulness in Nature into your personal Wellness routine. We are excited to end this session with a tea ceremony. Reservations: https://www.friendsofclermont.org/event
