The forest is the setting for so many of our magical childhood adventures and memories. As adults, forests provide refuge, places to find silence and green space away from busy and sometimes chaotic lives. Perhaps that is just an afternoon at a local park or a vacation spent camping under the stars. But even when we can't find the time to be in the woods, forests support us daily from providing clean air and filtering water, to cooling our planet, to providing habitat for song birds, reptiles, fish and mammals. A well-managed forest provides for many other critical needs like lumber to build houses, firewood to keep us warm or paper to capture our thoughts. Our urban forests, those individual trees in our yards and lining our streets, or spanning the length of a neighborhood creek. Urban canopies are important in helping to moderate the temperature of our homes and businesses. Whether a glimpse out the window or a trip to our public lands, trees connect us to the seasons as we watch them leaf out, flower, change color and fall, or host all sorts of avian guests throughout the year.
No matter if you have a single favorite tree, enjoy getting lost in the woods on a hike, or can simply rest easy knowing they are silently doing the work of heroes, Team Forest is for you. When you give to team forests, you are helping CRLC save forests for public parks and others for essential timberland. You help us reforest lands that we steward and bring forests into urban spaces to fight the urban heat island and bring underserved communities into nature. Join Team Forests as we go for gold in the 2021 Conservation Games! Help us build our team by inviting your family, friends, and colleagues to participate!
