Survey finds we are happier outside

The Nature Conservancy of Canada wants you to get outside  - and today will be a good day to do it.

A recent survey called "Nature and Me" shows we aren't getting out into nature enough even though it makes us feel happier, healthier and more productive.

Kristyn Ferguson, director of conservation, says Canadians have lots of excuses for staying indoors: it's too hot, too cold, too wet, too many bugs.

Seventy-four per cent say that it is simply easier to spend time indoors.

NCC  encourages people to go out and take in our spectacular fall colors and get some fresh air and walk off some turkey,

The survey was released as part of NCC’s Landmark Campaign — the largest private charitable campaign for conservation in Canadian history.
 
This $750-million campaign will double the land and water conserved by NCC to more than 6 million acres, including 500 new land conservation projects across the country.
