El proyecto también está agregando experiencias de la naturaleza en línea que incluyen cámaras estacionarias de naturaleza en vivo para brindar a las personas que no pueden participar en el sendero acceso a los mismos beneficios para la salud mental de las vistas y los sonidos de la naturaleza desde su hogar.
