FROM THE INTRODUCTION:
It’s no secret. Spending time outdoors, whether it be for sports, play, or the enjoyment of nature, leads to improved health and well-being. It’s the fundamental concept behind field sports, recess at schools, outdoor activity clubs, and most of our own personal motivations for doing things outside, whether it be gardening, farming, hiking, trail running, hunting, fishing, camping, meditating in the woods, or biking around one of the beautiful Finger Lakes. Fresh air, exercise, and spending time in natural settings has immeasurable benefit for all of us – although recently, some of this benefit is being measured, as FLLT Conservation Easement Steward Hannah George points out in this issue of Afoot in the Field.
