Transition Bluffton will hold a public event on Tuesday, September 18, at the Bluffton University Nature Preserve during which participants will experience the emotional and health benefits of being in nature. Although modern technologies are making our life easier, more and more people are experiencing a sense of unease and anxiety. New scientific research is concluding that our being disconnected from nature may be the cause. Scientists are finding that a connection to the natural world is crucial for our health and well-being.
Join Beth Theisen, a naturalist at the Johnny Appleseed Metro Park District, to experience the calm and peace that nature provides as you decrease your stress hormones, your blood pressure, and your feelings of overwhelm. Participants will meet for this introductory experience at 6:30 pm in the main parking lot of the Bluffton University Nature Preserve located at 10535 Augsburger road in Bluffton. All are welcome to join us to reap the health benefits of being in nature!
In case of rain, the event will take place on October 2 at the same time and same place.
