In these stressful times, we are all looking for ways to help us stay healthy, active and connected as we manage the pandemic and the long-awaited call for racial justice transformations. Author Florence Williams will share with us her research on how nature can help heal us. In The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative, Williams investigates the science behind nature’s positive effects on the brain. She will present the newest research on the powers of the natural world to improve health, promote reflection and innovation, and strengthen our relationships. Now more than ever, a walk in nature may be just what you need.
Join moderators from America Walks and OAK in a discussion with Florence Williams, as she presents the key findings from the book and spends time answering all of our questions. Two lucky winners will be sent copies of the book (in a random drawing of all attendees on the webinar).
