The BC Parks Foundation launches Canada's First National Nature Prescription Program
Nature prescriptions were named one of the top 8 global wellness trends in 2019. And it's no surprise—research shows that kids and adults who spend more time in nature are happier and healthier. Launched on November 30th to significant media attention (The Globe & Mail, CTV News, Vancouver Sun), PaRx is breaking ground as Canada's first national, evidence-based nature prescription program. Featuring practical resources like quick tips and patient handouts, its goal is to make prescribing time in nature simple, fun and effective.

As part of the launch, and out of gratitude to nurses, the BC Parks Foundation is partnering with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides to offer remote forest therapy sessions to BC nurses in January 2021 so that you can get some stress relief and experience the benefits of nature yourself. Limited complimentary sessions are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please e-mail the Foundation at [info@bcparksfoundation.ca] for a registration access code.
