Long Point Basin Land Trust was founded in 1996 with a mission to protect and restore functioning ecosystems in the central Carolinian Region. This is accomplished through land ownership, land management and nature stewardship. LPBLT currently protects 10 nature reserves, totaling 671 acres, which provide opportunities for people to connect with nature through hands-on outdoor experiences.
We are so very excited to be launching the new Explore the Outdoors program, which will bring people together to explore and appreciate the amazing natural areas in this region.
All of the events are FREE and open to anyone! However, registration is recommended for attendance at any of the events and will open one month prior to each event. The number of available spaces varies by event and may be limited. Do not forget to bring to the events whatever you need to enjoy your time outdoors – water bottle, hiking boots, sunscreen, bug spray, snacks, etc.

Bathing in a forest?
June 8 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
There’s no place like a forest to bring you a feeling of peace and connection with the living world of nature.,The emotional, mental and physical benefits of being immersed in nature are now widely recognized, with new studies happening often. We will explore these benefits while exploring the beautiful forest, engaging in conversation, quiet moments of contemplation, an introduction to meditation, and more.
Forest walks are a great way to get to know the many species of trees that exist here in Norfolk county. The interaction of different tree species is not only interesting but can also help us to see our own lives from a new perspective.
Tommy is a practitioner of the art of Zen, and he brings a holistic sensibility to everything he does. Join us in feeling the gentle power of the spirit of the forest!
