With John P. Cardone. Long Island author, lecturer, and photographer

Mr. Cardone will get you thinking about spending more time outdoors as he uses a PowerPoint presentation to present the facts. This lecture is based on John’s research for his new book project entitled, The Healing Power of Nature. During his talk, John presents information on how spending time with nature can influence our health & well-being.

Along the way, he calls on his over 30 years in healthcare education, his own fight with illness, and his years as a lover of the outdoors while presenting the scientific facts. Enjoy his nature photos of waterscapes and wildlife most taken while kayaking LI waters. Find out more about the importance of calming your mind, the health benefits of the outdoors, and why it is especially important to share this spirit with children—all of which will get you wanting to spend more time with nature.
