C&NN April Research Digest

Food, medicine, and nature. For many people around the world, these are the reasons we should leave our homes. Otherwise, we are asked to stay indoors to protect ourselves, and others, from COVID-19. Now more than ever, nature is being seen as essential. And with good reason. As the research featured in this special issue of the Digest suggests, accessing neighborhood nature is an important strategy for building resilience, buffering stress, and recovering from adversity.

On behalf of everyone at the Children & Nature Network, we wish you good health and stand ready to assist you in connecting to nature in safe and effective ways.
