Happy International Forests Day!
This is an opportunity to celebrate the natural beauty of forests and to help ensure that they are protected for future generations.
You can celebrate forests by going for a walk in your local woodland! In Edinburgh I can recommend Colinton Dell by the Water of Leith; Hermitage of Braid; Cammo Country Park and Corstorphine Hill.
If you enjoy walking in forests and woodlands, then you will be keen to protect them for future generations. In the UK, the Woodland Trust works hard to protect ancient woodland and other areas of woodland. On their website, they offer sone useful ideas for how you can get involved in protecting woodland.
I love walking in woodlands and enjoying the peace and quiet and the beauty of the trees and other plants, the birds and mammals. I love watching as woodland nature changes through the seasons.
Which are your favourite areas of woodland and what do you most like about them?
