Latino Connections with Nature

In partnership with Vive | NW EarthLab is studying how contact with nature improves cognitive, emotional and physical health, and exploring the specific barriers and facilitators that shape the ability of Latino communities to access nature and enjoy these benefits. Our results will provide educators, urban planners and environmental organizations with a detailed understanding of what they can do to support Latino communities’ positive connections with the natural world. Project leads include Julian Olden, professor of aquatic and fishery sciences and Pooja Tandon at the UW School of Medicine, Seattle Children’s.
