Hot off the press! Land&People – the health issue

The newest issue of Land&People hits Trust for Public Land member mailboxes this week. (Have you gotten yours yet? Share your thoughts by leaving a comment below).

Our Spring/Summer 2014 health issue highlights some of the countless ways that parks and wild places make us happier, healthier, and more connected to nature and each other. In this issue, a family physician takes a closer look at the unexpected ways community gardens improve the health of the whole neighborhood. A journalist travels across the country to meet five people who have experienced profound healing in nature. And blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer explains how hiking your local trails can be just as transformative as summiting Everest.

Fully Fund Safe, Active Transportation Systems

The Active Transportation Infrastructure Investment Program (ATTIIP) is a vital initiative that helps expand trails connecting people to nature and their broader neighborhoods. Despite this importance, Congress allocated $0 for ATTIIP in this year’s appropriations process. We cannot delay investments in safe, active transportation systems. Urge Congress to fully fund the ATTIIP!
