Explore NB's Forests This National Forest Week

Whether it's going for a stroll in the woods or having a picnic by the shade of a tree, take some time to appreciate forests this week.

That's what Andrew Holland of the Nature Conservancy of Canada is suggesting you do to mark National Forest Week. Holland tells CHSJ News forests help drive our economy, clean our air and water, help mitigate flooding from storms and give us a place to explore.

Holland says many people who grew up in rural New Brunswick learned to find a friend in trees, but nowadays, many kids are only interested in staying indoors and playing video games and he believes we have to get them back to enjoying nature.
