Connecting Community to Nature


The Calfresh Healthy Living (CFHL) team celebrated Park Rx Community Nature Day (CND) at Flood Park in Menlo Park on September 24. Attendees had to opportunity to explore a local county park, practice mindful meditation, play outdoor games, and learn about resources from community partners like the San Mateo County Libraries, the SMC Sheriff’s Activity League, Martha Vasquez from Transformación, and other community-based organizations all while enjoying the benefits of nature. Dr. Chethan Sarabu explained the health benefits of spending time in nature, which include reduced blood pressure, less headaches, lowering stress, and improving mood and behavior. We offer several family nature day events during the year! Join us for our next one: A Night Hike at Edgewood Park on October 28, call Gloria to save your spot: (628) 258-3203.
