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.
