                Exposure to nature is vital to our physical and emotional health, explains Donald Wleklinski, of the University of Arkansas School of Nursing faculty.  He tells how “nature engages your attention in a relaxed fashion with such things as leaves rustling, patterns of clouds, sunsets, a bird, and the shape of an old tree. Nature captures our attention in subtle, bottom-up ways and allows our top-down attention abilities a chance to regenerate.”  Natural environments “restore” our attention.  Wleklinski’s presentation is well backed up with thorough research and references.  He indicates that some of us may suffer from “nature-deficit” and shows how exposure to nature can provide preventative health care and empower everyone, children and adults, both physically and mentally.  The presentation will include a period for questions and answers.
