The benefits of using nature contact/outdoor recreation with Service members are well documented, including contemplative, recreational, and hands-on habitat restoration activities. This webinar will help military service providers identify the value of transitioning service members’ participation in outdoor recreation; analyze research related to using outdoor recreation; become familiar with formal and informal opportunities; and prepare to refer service members to recreational/outdoor opportunities.
