March 21 has been declared the International Day of Forests by the United Nations. It is a day to appreciate our forests. Forests are an essential part of ecosystems and support a wide variety of plants, animals, and insects. Deforestation is an important global issue and this day is meant to raise awareness of the importance of preserving the world’s forests.
Here are some ways to love our trees on this day:
- Webelos can work on the Into the Woods adventure
- Scouts BSA can start on the Forestry merit badge
- Learn about tree rings
- Sing the Take Me Out to the Forest song
- Make a Seed Neckerchief Slide
- Learn about the layers of the forest
