Each year, Placer Land Trust works to protect valuable wild and agricultural land, build new trails, and increase access to nature for all who live and play in Placer County. But we can’t do it without the support of all those who truly believe in the same cause – that time spent in nature improves quality of life! As you consider giving back this holiday season, we hope you’ll ponder…
By giving a gift to Placer Land Trust,
I can do the following for my community…
Many studies show that spending time in nature can reduce anxiety, depression, symptoms of A.D.D., and lower the risk of diabetes. It can also increase immunity, energy, weight-loss, fitness, and much more!
Nature is known to increase happiness, but a new study shows it can also lead people to value community and close relationships. As compassion for the environment increases, so does our compassion for others.
“Outdoor recreation has psychological benefits, including the prevention or reduction of stress; improved self-esteem, confidence and creativity; spiritual growth; and an increased sense of exhilaration, adventure and challenge from life.”
-Dr. Andrew Lepp, Kent State
Bring Education to Life
Outdoor education can motivate students to learn as it makes subjects relevant and exciting. Science comes to life when experienced in a natural setting. Many kids who don’t succeed in a traditional classroom thrive in an outdoor, hands-on living lab.
We hope you’ll consider giving a gift that will make a difference for so many, and that will last…FOREVER!
