Get Outside – Protect Nature Challenge

Studies show that time spent in nature makes us happier and healthier. It improves our mood and creates positive feelings. The more people experience nature, the more they appreciate, love and care for it.

The first step is to get outside and connect with nature. Local parks and gardens can be a good place to start. Hiking and camping excursions allow you to disconnect from modern living and reconnect with nature.

In these precious moments outdoors, feel the impact of the natural world and find the motivation to make simple changes to your habits.

Discover activities at Canada’s national parks and national wildlife areas.
