This research project explores the potential benefits of group walking in natural environments. Some of these benefits may include improved perceived stress, depression, and overall mental health well-being. Participants were assigned, in one of three conditions, a walk at Lithia Park, a walk indoors at the Rogue Valley Mall, or a social meeting indoors with no physical activity for 45 minutes. Participants took three surveys before and after their assigned activities.
