On December 9 The Nature Connection's Executive Director Kimberly Simmons introduced Concord Rotarians to the organization's programs and successes. The traveling program is headquartered in the Umbrella on Stow Street but carries out its activities in many towns beyond Concord. The Nature Connection's mission is to improve the wellbeing of individuals and communities through the therapeutic use of nature. Their staff and volunteers bring nature to those who have limited access to the outside world. For example, taking animals to assisted living sites, plants to nursing home residents, " nature" to hospitals, residential schools, at-risk youth programs, special needs facilities and Alzheimer's care programs. We wanted to learn more and will do so by visiting The Nature Connection's website and FB page.
