Cabin Fever Has an Online Cure This Year

National Wildlife Federation site shows parks and green spaces close to your zip code

TUESDAY, Dec. 25 (HealthDay News) -- Is your only connection to nature's beauty that Christmas evergreen in your living room this season?

If so, The National Wildlife Federation has developed a Web-based tool to help you find live evergreens - and other of natural wonders - thriving in the great outdoors in green places close to your zip code.

The federation teamed up with NatureFind to develop a quick and easy way to find many of the green places in your community including regional, state and national parks. Some private parks and nature centers are available on this system as well.

The database, called the National Wildlife Federations Green Hour, also provides suggestions of activities you can do when you get outdoors, including tracking animals, catching snowflakes, filling birdfeeders and organizing a winter scavenger hunt.

The federation recommends giving children a Green Hour every day to help reduce stress, build immunity, lose weight and increase imaginative play.

To learn more green spaces in your area, visit the Green Hour.
