why nature matters…
minutes a day
15-45 minutes a day in a city park, even one with pavement and street noise, are enough to improve mood, vitality and feelings of restoration.
Early exposure to nature, particularly time spent in nature before the age of 11, is especially important in building a life long connection to nature.
Hours a Month
is the amount of time a human being needs to spend in nature every month to be mentally and physically healthy. People who are part of low-income communities are less likely to have access to green space near them and fewer resources to travel to it.
