Increasing evidence indicates that nature exposure is associated with lower mortality, improved stress, mental health, attention, and mood. This evidence is driving a trend in nature prescription programs. According to the National ParkRx Initiative, there are 75-100 nature prescription programs across the United States. In this webinar, Elisa Sarantschin will introduce NaturePHL, a collaborative program that gets Philadelphia’s kids outdoors through park prescriptions, and its Nature Navigator model approach. Michelle Kondo will describe research underway on the NaturePHL program and on other similar nature prescription.

Presenters: 

Elisa Sarantschin, The Schuylkill Center
Michelle Kondo, USDA Forest Service
