Penn’s Month-long Outdoors Program: 30x30

You know spring is here when it’s time for Penn’s 30x30 Challenge:

It’s time to get outside! The 30x30 Challenge is an effort to encourage the Penn community to get outside, learn about local ecology, and appreciate the beauty of nature. Join Penn’s 30x30 Challenge and challenge yourself to spend at least 30 minutes outdoors in nature each day for all 30 days of April. The Challenge runs from April 1-30. 

 Did you know that Americans spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, according to the EPA? Over the last decade, researchers have been documenting what many of us know intuitively—that nature is good for our health and well-being. Regularly immersing yourself in a natural setting—like a park, forest, or field—can reduce stress while boosting immunity, energy levels, and creativity.


30x30 is open to all Penn students, staff and faculty. You can register for the challenge at
