Why connect near nature?
Outdoor environments decrease stress
15 minutes in the woods has been shown to reduce cortisol levels. Increase nature exposure to 45 minutes, and most individuals see improvements in cognitive performance. (Williams)
Nature makes us more collaborative
Exposure to nature resulted in people valuing community and connectedness over personal gain and fame. They also became more generous and willing to share. (Seppälä & Berlin)
Time outside restores attention fatigue
If you use your brain to multitask and then go on a walk, you let the prefrontal cortex recover. That’s when we see bursts in creativity, problem-solving, and feelings of well-being. (Suttie)
A short walk from Barton Springs pool, the Barton Creek Greenbelt, and Zilker Park, the lodge is an ideal, nature-adjacent venue for spending a day outdoors.
