30-Day Nature Challenge

Okay, we're on the brink of May. Spring is here, and you know what that means, don't you?

No, it's not time to get bikini ready. It's time to get smarter, healthier, and happier. All for free. 

How do we do this? Well, the David Suzuki Foundation is betting that if you spend 30 minutes in nature every day for 30 days, starting on May 1, you will reap these rewards—and more.

The organization, which aims to protect the diversity of nature by inspiring people to act with nature in mind, is betting that by simply spending more time outdoors, our resolve to protect the planet will grow stronger. Talk about a win-win!

The foundation is Canadian, and this is a "Canadian" challenge, but that doesn't mean other nationalities can't join the ride!

Sign up for the 30x30 Nature Challenge.  You will receive tips on how to get your daily nature fix throughout the month. 

You can fill out a survey (at the start of the challenge and at the end) that the foundation will use to determine if more nature increases people's well-being.

Could it really be that the secret to happiness is just getting outside more often? 

Let's get onboard to support this effort! Sign up and let us know how it goes!
