Nature and Health: Escaping the Sidewalks

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Emerging science that explores how nature nurtures our physical and mental health reveals a surprisingly easy way to improve well-being—spend time in natural settings. In an urban environment of brick, concrete, and steel how can this happen? Join us as we examine what recent studies tell us about the connection between nature and health. Members should be prepared to hit the road to explore some of Chicago’s health-enriching naturescapes.  This study group will alternate virtual meetings with afternoon visits to Chicagoland nature areas. Together we will explore four to five different locations to learn how easy it is to achieve access to nature in our city. We will have two to three virtual sessions to examine the science and discuss the nature areas we visited. Study group members will be encouraged to share reflections such as journaling, photographs, art, or poems as part of our discussions. Don your most comfortable shoes and join us as we escape the sidewalks.
