Ken Ouendag

Apprentice Trainer

Ken Ouendag completed training with the ANFT in 2017 to become Vancouver's first Certified Forest Therapy Guide. He founded Nature Connected Forest Therapy Walks in 2017, offering public and private walks and retreats that are inspired by the Japanese tradition of shinrin-yoku (also known as “forest bathing”). He also assists with ANFT guide trainings and serves as a mentor, supporting forest therapy guides-in-training. His guided walks invite people to explore new ways of connecting with nature, while opening the door to the healing properties of forests and other natural environments. Originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Ken was drawn to the West Coast of Canada by its lush forests and calming scenery. Since moving to British Columbia in 2009, he has undergone numerous outdoor educator and guiding courses. In addition to his work in forest therapy, he offers recreation therapy programming to older adults living in long-term care.
