National Walk in the Woods Day!

2011 is recognized as the International Year of Forests by the United Nationas General Assembly.  It is a time to understand and learn to appreciate the role trees and forests play in our daily lives.  In conjunction with the Year of Forests, the American Forest Foundation is coordinating National Walk in the Woods Day on Saturday, May 21, 2011.  Their site provides some fun and exciting activities you can lead or participate in.  To seach for an event you can attend in your state click here.

I hope you will consider helping youth and adults alike to discover a forest and learn about its importance by participating in, or leading, a “walk in the woods.”  Be sure and share this day with others.
