March 21st - Happy International Day of Forests! Designated in 2012 by the United Nations, this day serves to celebrate and raise awareness of the importance of all types of forests. This years theme, forests and biodiversity, highlights the amazing impact forests have on our communities by providing food, shelter, energy, and income.
