How can getting out into nature improve our health?  Learn about how taking a walk and surrounding yourself with nature can improve your physical and mental health.  There are easy ways to incorporate healthy lifestyle choices in daily living. You don't have to go far to experience all the benefits nature has to offer.  Nearby Hickory Hill Park provides 190 acres of natural area, forest, trails, reconstructed prairies and wetlands. We will explore this park and be exposed to a variety of ways getting out into nature provides benefits for the body and mind.  Natural resources are precious so along the way students will be collecting any trash/garbage left in the park. Please dress for the weather.  We will be outside for two hours.  Hats, gloves, scarves, etc. will be helpful to keep you warm.  Also wear good walking shoes/boots (especially if there is snow) with warm socks. Meet in room 2104.
