Volunteer Fence Pull

Want to help wildlife at Bald Hill Farm? Join Greenbelt staff and volunteers as we reduce the amount of barbed-wire fence along trails so that wildlife, such as deer, can move safely and easily around this conservation area.

  • Be active at your own pace for several hours
  • Hike up to 2 miles on trail surfaces

Qigong in Nature

Come outdoors with Greenbelt Land Trust for a Qigong class at Bald Hill Farm! Qigong (pronounced “chee gung”) is a Chinese form of healing exercise practiced for thousands of years. The class will be led by Dr. Peter Eschwey of Soma Clinic for Natural Medicine in Corvallis. Dr. Eschwey is a certified Qigong instructor who has been in practice for over 20 years. He will be leading us through gentle movements to stretch the body, increase blood flow, build body awareness, improve mental clarity, and reduce tension− all in a beautiful natural area. Who doesn’t need that?!

This event is free and open to the public. No experience necessary! Wear loose, comfortable clothes, bring an open mind, and enjoy a cup of tea at the end of the class.
