Nature is quickly becoming a prescription for easing the conditions sometimes experienced in the lives of busy people, such as stress and anxiety. Spend some time outdoors your doctor may say, and for good reason, there is much to be gained by breathing fresh air, putting your hands in the dirt, or taking time to literally smell the roses. At Habitat Network, the added bonus is that your time spent outdoors can also help the flora and fauna we share our communities with. Do something good for you and for wildlife–engage with nature.

Goals Articles Are Special
This article is a part of our Planning for Habitat series. Habitat Network encourages you to set goals for each site you map so you can work towards outcomes that matter to you. Each goal has an introductory article, that links you to actions you might be able to take on your site to work towards meeting your goals.
Actions to Engage with Nature
These are the current actions that are tied to this goal. Whether or not you have “completed” an action is tied to the data collected via your site map. Each Habitat Map has its own goals and actions. To learn more about any action, or about how to change data on your map related to this action, click the link.
