Although we have known for thousands of years that spending time in nature benefits us as humans, it has only been in the last few decades that scientific research has shown why those benefits exist and what we can each do to take full advantage of them. In this presentation, Cornell University professor Dr. Don Rakow will describe the latest research findings and relate them to ways that individuals, regardless of their age, can spend quality time in nature to improve their overall wellbeing.
At the end of the lecture, Dr. Rakow will lead a mindful nature walk around the Arboretum.
This lecture will be held in person at the Arboretum. Registration is required. Register here:
