A portal into our spaces: nature in action.

  Outside a museum. Tucked in a city block. Next to the intensive care unit. Our Sacred Places are designed for easy access to nature where and when people need it most. What does that look like? How does it work? Here, we serve up day-to-day Nature Sacred stories, lessons learned, and short vignettes of community life to give you the flavor—a sense of the kinds of things that happen in our Sacred Places.
