OneOp Webinar
April 17, 2024 11:00am - 12:00pm
Via Zoom

Join OneOp, a free and open-access multidisciplinary professional development resource for providers serving military families, for their webinar. Decades of research confirm that people experience myriad health and wellness benefits when they spend time interacting with nature—from increased physical activity to improved emotional wellbeing. But the amount of time we Americans spend outside has been declining over the years. Join this webinar where we highlight some of the latest health and nature research and make the case for why we need to get back into the great outdoors regularly. We will wrap up by describing some practical programs and initiatives that help connect individuals, children, and communities to nature.

Learning objectives for this webinar include:

  • Identify health and wellness benefits to spending time in nature.

  • Discuss enablers and barriers to regularly connecting with nature.

  • Explore programs that help individuals, families, and communities to get outside.

*The live webinar will be available on Zoom and the on-demand webinar will be available on YouTube.

Approved for 1 hour of CFLE continuing education.
