Join Northeast Wilderness Trust for our 20th Anniversary Spring Speaker Series, celebrating that We Are One of Many!
Have you ever taken a walk in the forest and left feeling refreshed and less stressed? Forests have benefited humans in many ways throughout history, and scientists are trying to understand more about the benefits for our brains. What can forests help with? Who do they help, and how? Learn about emerging neuroscience with Dr. Susan Masino of Trinity College.
This event is free and made possible by NEWT’s wonderful community of supporters. Please consider a $5-10 donation to support Northeast Wilderness Trust’s work to save wild places. Click here to make a gift…thank you!
