Fall in love with nature.

#NatureForAll is a global movement to inspire love of nature and support its conservation.

Many studies have shown that time in nature makes us happier and healthier. It improves our mood and creates feelings of pleasure. We also know that the more people experience nature, the more they appreciate, love, and care for it.

However, the loss of connection to nature is having social and health impacts on Canadians.

The time to rediscover our connection to nature locally, regionally and nationally is now.
