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.
"I just really love the outdoors. For me, it’s the belief in something bigger than myself and also having the ability to leave a legacy, because this is all we’ve got."
