The Research

One of our co-founders, Stacy Bare, was lucky enough to be part of some of the first ground breaking research about the power of the outdoors with the Greater Good Science Center at Cal-Berkeley. What was identified from that research was that the emotion of awe is one of the reasons that time outdoors is so transformational. Awe leads to all sorts of positive things, physiologically and psychologically including lower levels of inflammation, better rest and increases in positive hormones. Increased curiosity, willingness to learn, felt senses of "being ok" and deeper connections with self and the world around you are all documented affects of time in the outdoors.
