Forests & Living Consciously

-- Conscious Living Event --

This week we are celebrating National Forest Week -  this awareness holiday started in 1920 as Forest Fire Prevention and evolved into what we see today.  

According to CanadianForestry.com: "During National Forest Week, Canadians are invited to learn more about Canada's forest heritage and to raise awareness about this valuable and renewable resource. We now know that forests are fundamental to our economy, culture, traditions and history - and to our future. Communities, families and individuals depend on forests for their livelihood and way of life."

So take some time today, or sometime this week, to enjoy the green space in your area. Take a walk in the park or in the forest, clean up litter while you enjoy the area - especially plastics (which harm wildlife) and glass (even small pieces of broken glass can harm humans, animals, and cause wildfires). Perhaps you can get together with an organization, group or your family to plant a tree. School and home-school youth can take some time to learn to identify different types of wood around their home or classroom. Are there organizations in your area that focus on wildlife, wilderness protection? (i.e. TreeCanada.ca or PlantABillion.org or PlantATreeFoundation.org) perhaps you can get involved with them.
