Will you invest in YOU and pledge today?
The challenge is simple. Pledge to spend a minimum of 30 minutes in nature each day for 30 days in June. As an individual or group, it is no cost to pledge. It seems like a simple task, but can you be outside without your phone or tablet? Have you taken time to acknowledge and appreciate the ecosystem services benefiting your well-being?
Participation in the challenge can result in greater understanding of your interaction with nature and the built environment, as well as build a greater appreciation for natural spaces in our communities. Some studies show, taking time to spend in nature and having natural views can relieve stress, increase memory performance and creativity, and improve attention span.
