Florence Williams visits the Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter to discuss The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative on Saturday, October 27th at 6:00 PM.
The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative takes readers from forest trails in Korea, to islands in Finland, to eucalyptus groves in California. Williams investigates the science behind nature’s positive effects on the brain. Delving into brand-new research, she uncovers the powers of the natural world to improve health, promote reflection and innovation, and strengthen our relationships. As our modern lives shift dramatically indoors, these ideas―and the answers they yield―are more urgent than ever.
