About The Program

NatureRx is a national movement for doctors and healthcare providers to initiate the conversation with patients about the health benefits of connecting with nature and outdoor physical activity. Ask your community health caregiver for a referral.

NatureRx Rutland County

Come Alive Outside is thrilled that Community Health is sponsoring and having such a hands-on partnership with the NatureRx program in Rutland County, Vermont.

CAO will direct the NatureRx program, conducting two twelve-week cohorts in 2022.  Community Health providers will refer patients to this innovative program and a CAO NatureRx Coordinator will deliver one-on-one health coaching, as well as tools for setting and tracking goals.  Group walks will take place at two locations in the county biweekly.

At this time, only referrals through providers at the Community Health Centers will be considered.  If your provider is at one of these locations, please ask if this program is right for you.
