The connectedness to nature scale (CNS) is a measure of individuals' trait levels of feeling emotionally connected to the natural world in the realm of social and environmental psychology. The CNS is being used to test the effects of situational factors and personality characteristic that might impact connection to nature. A study by Mayer and Frantz (2004) found the CNS to be a significant predictor of ecological behavior and subjective well-being.[1]
