We thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite books that encourage us to get outdoors! Fun fact: The idea to start Healthy Parks Healthy Person was inspired by some of the concepts in the book Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv. Here is a short list of some books we have read, and some that are on our to-read list. We encourage you to visit your local library or support your local bookstore when searching for these. Feel free to share YOUR favorite nature-based book with us on social media!
