The benefits that nature provides can be found everywhere and are ultimately free. Every day we can experience:
Sights - Blue skies, billowy clouds, colorful flowers.
Sounds - Birds singing, leaves rustling in the wind and running waters.
Smells - Aromas from fresh rain, a wood burning fire, salty coastlines.
Touch - Soft breezes, cool sand, warm sun on face.
Taste - Clean drinking water, sweet berries, smoky flavors.
There are countless sights to observe and senses to absorb outside. Learn to use and appreciate the available resources, while staying safe in your outdoor adventure:
- Check the local weather before you go.
- Have a map of any trails or areas.
- Take necessities such as water, sunblock, insect repellent.
- Tell someone your plans.
- Use the buddy system.
“Live in the sunshine. Swim in the sea. Drink in the wild air.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
