We know that getting into nature is excellent for your physical and mental health. Getting out of your house, while keeping 6 feet of distance from other people, avoiding crowds, breathing fresh air is exactly what you need during these stressful times.

Here are a few extras ideas to help you and your loved-ones access nature while staying indoors.
