family getaway edition

Spending time outside in natural environments is certainly beneficial to many of us, but is there actually evidence that it can promote our well-being, prevent disease, and speed recovery?

Dr. Jay Maddock


We are fortunate to live only two hours from the mountains and three hours from the beach. With the best of both worlds at our fingertips, make quality time a priority and take a much needed family vacation. 

Liz Vander Leeuw

Michael Paul Nelson, Jeremy T. Bruskotter, and John A. Vucetich
