Please Share this page with Friends, Family & Colleagues


When you join as a Community Member, at any level, your name or business name will be listed on this page to recognize your contribution. A link to this page is included on our scholarship application page, in scholarship announcement emails, and in the email to scholarship recipients. We would like our guides to know that they have the support of a broad community of people and organizations who believe in the benefits of forest therapy.

The Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs recognizes that there are many ways in our society that challenge some people’s ability to fully participate in the opportunities that call to them. We believe that nature should be a place of healing, discovery and inspiration for all peoples, regardless of their background or the resources available to them. We continually strive to cultivate inclusion and diversity among our guides. In this spirit, the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs offers a limited number of full and partial tuition scholarships for forest therapy guide trainings to applicants who experience financial barriers to training programs like ours, and who demonstrate a strong potential for bringing forest therapy to communities and settings that open the doors for others to participate. You can read about our scholarship program here.

All memberships are for one year. To maintain your listing on this page, please consider renewing annually.

Thank you for your generosity in supporting our forest therapy guide scholarship program!

If you would like to contribute more than $1000, then please contact

Please note that the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs is not a charitable organization. Your donations may not be tax deductible.

Human communities, like forests, thrive on diversity.
The Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs is committed to creating and sustaining a welcoming, equitable, and inclusive environment for new guides, participants and contributors from all cultures and backgrounds. We strive to be a place of belonging for all people interested in cultivating healthy relationships within human communities and the natural world.
