Our forests are more than just unused and protected tracts of land. They are homes to our amazing flora and fauna. Without these forests, we might not have the owls, woodpeckers, mushrooms, etc. We need to protect these forests for our future. They prevent the loss of such animals, rare flowers, trees, and soil erosion. Plus, they have health benefits. I know about right now you’re saying, “What is this girl talking about…health benefits?” Yes, they have health benefits. Did you know that just 20 minutes in nature has a significant impact on your blood pressure, anxiety, stress, and can help calm you? That’s all it takes to de-stress.
