On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

A virtual option has been created to post and search for those events and programs that are offering an online gathering opportunity for our Hoopla readers. Enjoy!

Event Description

Spend the afternoon exploring the mindfulness practice of forest immersion with Dr. Suzanne Bartlett Hackenmiller, MD, FACOG, FABOIM, a practitioner of integrative medicine. In this afternoon at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha), we will learn about evidence supporting the healing benefits of forest bathing and then experience an extended gentle, contemplative, guided walk with the Prairiewoods land. We will use our senses to enhance well-being in the healing embrace of nature. Breathe, relax, wander, touch, smell, taste, see, listen, share and engage! This hands-on forest experience is offered in partnership with Trees Forever as part of its Earth Week Blitz. The cost is $50 and includes snacks. Please register and pay by April 23. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at www.Prairiewoods.org or 319-395-6700.
