International Day of Forests (March 21st)

When we write in a notebook, take medication, or even build a house we don’t always remember we owe all of this and more to the forests. This international holiday was established on November 28, 2012 to celebrate our planet.

Each year, more than 13 million acres of forest are lost — roughly the size of England. The International Day of Forests was established to bring awareness, increase respect, and ensure forest preservation.

In addition to resources like oxygen and wood, forests mean a healthy environment for all of us. They stabilize the climate, control atmospheric temperatures, protect watershed areas, and enrich the soil.

President Roosevelt called the forests “the lungs of the earth”.  Poets over the centuries have been inspired by their majestic beauty. And, everyday people take a simple walk in the woods looking for solace and peace, to calm their spirit, invigorate their senses, and drive away those winter blues.  This March 21st, I hope you will get out and enjoy a forest near you.  If you have a chance, take the time to educate the youth in your life.  Teach them to love, respect, and enjoy these amazing treasures.  We could all use a little calming inspiration in our life.
