Throughout the world, Blue Hens are living through these moments together. Day by day, we rise and make decisions about our health and wellness, the communities that we support and that support us, and what we can do to feel that we are thriving despite these challenging times. Whether it’s a quiet sunrise, a favorite meal, or a little brick courtyard that reminds us of our beautiful and bustling campus, we are never alone in these thoughts — and we know that every step we take to protect our flock brings us closer to each other once again.
The nature-based self-care brochure featured at right includes a list of outdoor spaces to explore within 100 miles of UD, as well as tips and resources to help you or a group opt outside wherever you are.
