Connecting People with Nature
Connecting people with nature is essential as we look to balance our increasingly indoor, urban lives with the benefits/fun of being outside. Opportunities for outdoor exercise/recreation, fresh air, and contemplation, support our physical and mental health and vibrancy while reminding us of our place in the natural world.
TLC connects people with nature by
• creating trails, greenways, community gardens, and related education centers
• helping create parks and regional land and water trail systems
• coordinating outdoor activities at our nature preserves for the Triangle community
• working with partners to ensure that all people have convenient access to these amenities.
