About PRL

The Parks Research Lab (PRL) at William & Mary aims to increase understanding of the contribution of nature engagement to health and well-being through nearby nature research and initiatives, while facilitating nature connection on campus and in our community.

On the William & Mary campus, PRL programs support students in spending more time outdoors, connecting and engaging with the natural world. By nurturing nature-connected communities, PRL seeks to cultivate an appreciation for nature that inspires environmental stewardship.

All PRL projects and interventions are free, thanks to support from the William & Mary Environmental Science & Policy program, Center for Geospatial Analysis, and The Charles Center.
