In the start of a new year, we become filled with an extra special kind of hope and excitement for all the new things that the coming year will bring. At the High Park Nature Centre, we see this time as a great opportunity for us to reflect and set (or reset) our intentions for connecting with the natural world.
Connection to nature can play an important role in supporting our mental and physical well-being and this past year, the desire to support this connection and to escape into a green space became increasingly apparent.
Since intention setting is such a deeply personal experience, we would like to offer you some gentle suggestions for nature connections that you can incorporate into the intentions you choose to set this new year:
As we move forward with COVID-19 recovery, many people have expressed that they would like to be connected with more opportunities to experience natural spaces in parks and would like to move indoor events and activities outdoors into parks to better allow for physical distancing. The HPNC is determined to make these opportunities available for people of all ages while continuing to inspire wonder, knowledge, and respect for nature in beautiful High Park.
Happy New Year!
