By collaborating with community members, our research team hopes to help reclaim natural spaces and mitigate growing health disparities. Join our study now as a participant or as an advisory member.

Join the Reclaiming Nature Community Advisory Team
This summer, we are starting our program, Reclaiming Nature project, which aims at reclaiming our indigenous connections to nature to heal in the era of COVID and Racism. We hope to recruit community organizations to partner with to increase access to green spaces and take our communities to the pristine Redwoods outdoors.
