Below is an excerpt from an article published in Central Coast Physicians’ magazine:

Encouraged by evidence that spending time outdoors in nature improves physical and mental health, local organizations joined together to launch Healthy People Healthy Trails. Its mission is to work collaboratively with land agencies, healthcare providers, and community partners to improve the health and wellbeing of community members through the use and enjoyment of trails, parks, and open spaces. Healthy People Healthy Trails focuses on those with high health needs to help them connect to an active life and connect to the outdoors.

Partners actively working on Healthy People Healthy Trails include CenCal Health, City of Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department, Coalition for Sustainable Transportation (COAST), Cottage Health, Sansum Clinic, Santa Barbara County Public Health Department, Santa Barbara County Trails Council, and Todos Afuera with additional support provided by the National Park Service and community members.
