Your Call: Your brain on nature


  We'll have a conversation with environment journalist Florence Williams about her new book The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative. 

From forest trails in Korea, to islands in Finland, to groves of eucalyptus in California, Williams investigates the science at the confluence of the natural world and how it affects our mood, health, and creativity. Delving into completely new research, she uncovers the powers of nature to improve health, promote reflection and innovation, and ultimately strengthen our relationships.


Florence Williams, fellow at the Center for Humans and Nature, visiting scholar at George Washington University, and contributing editor at Outside Magazine
