Nature & Health in Communities: A Review of Best Available Science

The research on nature experiences and public health outcomes is emerging as a major influence in community policy and planning. Acknowledging that nature is good for people is not new, but the science can help Extension Agents build a stronger and better case for integrating green infrastructure and urban greening into communities. Taking another step, showing the business case or economic value of providing more nature in communities moves trees, parks and gardens from 'nice to have' to an essential element of community planning and design.

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
