*Nature and Health in Communities: A Review of Best Available Science
Webinar date/time: Mar 14, 2018 1:00 pm US/Eastern Duration: 1 hour What
will you learn? The Green Cities: Good Health web site is an informational
portal to the extensive research on nature and human wellness response. Dr.
Wolf, the project director, will provide an overview of the science and its
relevance in community policy and planning. The research on nature
experiences and public health outcomes is emerging as a major influence in
community policy and planning. Acknowledging that nature is good for people
is not new, but the science can help Extension Agents build a stronger and
better case for integrating green infrastructure and urban greening into
communities. Taking another step, showing the business case or economic
value of providing more nature in communities moves trees, parks and
gardens from 'nice to have' to an essential element of community planning
and design. Presenter(s): Dr. Kathleen Wolf - Research Social Scientist,
College of the Environment, University of Washington, and Research
Associate with USDA Forest Service Pacific NW Research Station on research
program about Human Dimensions of Urban Forestry and Urban Greening No
