Event description

Description

On Friday, May 17 at 7pm, join Cary Institute for a presentation by Florence Williams. Williams will talk about her book "Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative."

From forest trails in Korea, to islands in Finland, to eucalyptus groves in California, Florence Williams investigates the science behind nature's positive effects on the brain. Delving into brand-new research, she uncovers the powers of the natural world to improve health, promote reflection and innovation, and strengthen our relationships. As our modern lives shift dramatically indoors, these ideas-and the answers they yield-are more urgent than ever. View the trailer at https://youtu.be/iwQkTuhId-o.

The event will be held in the Cary Institute auditorium. Registration for general admission is required; seating is first come, first served. Registration does not guarantee a seat inside the auditorium. Books will be available for purchase from Merritt Bookstore.

Aldo Leopold Society and Millbrook Garden Club members may contact Vicki Doyle for reserved seating at (845) 677-7600 x203 or doylev@caryinstitute.org.
