When we say “forest,” what do you say? Maybe “fresh air” or “renewable.” That’s because you recognize the impact that trees and forests have on our lives, from simple economics and ecology to personal and societal health. Share that knowledge with your community and continue celebrating America’s trees and forests.
You can help “Celebrate Forests. Celebrate Life.” in many ways, but the most crucial way is to help maintain and protect America’s trees and forests. Or simply just go on a nature walk and enjoy them. So, the next time someone says “forest,” you’ll have a lot to say! Here are some initial celebration ideas:
- Go on a nature walk.
- Do some research to learn how trees and forests impact our health in a variety of ways. Share that knowledge with your friends and family.
- Are you a schoolteacher? Teach your class about the importance of conserving America’s trees and forests, preventing wildfires and protecting wildlife.
- Is your company trying to “go green?” Help them join a tree planting or tree watering event in your community.
- Spread the word on Facebook and Twitter (#celebrateforests).
