Strike a Pose: Photos from the Watershed

Strike a Pose: Photos from the Watershed

We all know how important it to spend time in nature. At CVC, we love that people are inspired to share photos they take while exploring the Credit River Watershed. Here are some highlights from 2021 so far:

Spending time in nature boosts our happy hormones. One study found that taking a 20-minute walk in the woods trees, compared to an urban setting, significant reduced blood pressure and feelings of anxiety. To help stop the spread of COVID-19, stay local and explore a conservation area in your community. Learn which park is closest to you by visiting our conservation areas map.

If you’ve taken photos of nature in the Credit River Watershed, please share them with us by tagging us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
