Event Description

Green & Blue: A Natural Connection

Register today and join Trees Forever and partners to learn how trees and natural areas are critical to our health and well-being.

We’re delighted to have as keynote speaker, Richard Louv, international bestselling author of Last Child in the Woods and The Nature Principle. 

Also joining us will be one of the key researchers quoted in Louv’s books, Dr. William Sullivan, Professor of Landscape Architecture and Director of the Sustainability and Health Lab at the University of Illinois. With the selection of Cedar Rapids, Marion, and Iowa City as Blue Zones communities, this is the perfect time to explore how our own personal health and well-being as well as the economic vitality of our communities can
benefit from a daily dose of “Vitamin N” – NATURE!

Your registration fee includes not only these dynamic speakers, but a great “Blue Zones” lunch, and a choice of one of five afternoon workshops: 

  • Nature and Comprehensive Planning
  • Nature and Faith
  • Nature and Healing
  • Nature and Learning
  • Nature and Cities

We will close with a combined reception, motivational speaker, and networking. Register Now!

Fee: $50 for Trees Forever members; $75 for non-members. A limited number of scholarships ($25) are available to students and to Green Iowa AmeriCorps. CEU’s are available (self-reporting).
