Being in nature is good for our physical and mental health and strengthens our connection to everything that it provides. We depend upon fertile soil, clean water, and pristine air for our bodies to be nourished and thrive.

There are many ways we can help boost the health of our natural ecosystems, while feeling good about making more room for nature in our life. A few examples are: planting a tree, growing an edible garden, or volunteering with a local conservation organization.
