The Nature, Culture, and Human Health (NCH2) Network connects people with interests in investigating and applying knowledge about the health benefits of nature to improve the health and well-being of our Chicago-region communities.
Welcome to the home of the Nature, Culture, and Human Health (NCH2) Network. On this site you can find out more about who we are and what we do as well as ways to get involved in the network yourself.
The network is supported by four important organizations—the Chicago Botanic Garden, Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods, the Forest Preserves of Cook County, and Northwestern University. These organizations are the backbone of the NCH2 network and have enabled the network to grow in numbers and diversity. Click on their logos below to explore their websites and learn more about them.
