February News: What We Gain From Time Outside

“We cannot protect something we do not love, we cannot love what we do not know, and we cannot know what we do not see. And touch. And hear.” – Richard Louv, author of┬áLast Child in the Woods
If we have learned anything over the past several years, it is that nature is essential for our individual and community well-being.
As February ends, all of us at NCLC are looking forward to the warmer days of spring and more time spent outdoors enjoying nature’s health benefits. To help you look forward to these good things, too, in this newsletter, we share a video from NCLC and The Equus Effect on the therapeutic benefits of conservation. In addition, we have several upcoming member events, a member-submitted nature video, and we welcome a new staff member to our NCLC team.
