May The Forest Be With You
by Tim Burris, Mariton Preserve Manager
May the Fourth is often know as Star Wars Day. Foresters tweaked the saying to raise awareness of the life giving properties of our forests. Forests make oxygen for us to breath, and sequester carbon. They provide homes for all sorts of wildlife from the smallest insect to some of the largest mammals. We also know that forests contribute greatly to human mental health just by existing. So, today spend some time appreciating all the contributions that forests make in our life.
