About Us

The Nature Connections Guide aims to help residents of La Crosse County experience the many health benefits of engaging with nature, and advocates for accessible and diverse
natural spaces for making these connections.

The Nature Connections Program at the La Crosse County Health Department began with funding from the La Crosse Community Foundation in 2015 with a focus on biodiversity, community education, and demonstration projects.  As part of the Nature Connections Program, the Nature Connections Guide was launched in 2018 as a "one-stop" resource for connecting with nature in La Crosse County.  The Guide is currently funded by Mayo Clinic Health System & the Paul E. Stry Foundation and is maintained by the La Crosse County Health Department and WisCorps.
