Web Site

Trees are regal and leafy friends that play an important role in our environment and serve all kinds of useful purposes. This website from the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) is chalked full of fun facts about trees as well as "activi-trees" to celebrate the majestic giants we know as trees.

Each "activi-tree" lays out what you will need as well as the steps to do that activity.

Activi-trees include:
1. Poe-tree
Some wonderful words have been written about trees. Use your creativity to dream up the perfect ode.

2. Adopt-a-Tree
Make nature your own by getting up close and personal with one special tree!

3. Tree-rific Picnic
Trees give us so many delicious foods. Create a tree-theme picnic and you'll have it made in the shade.

4. Plant a Tree
Spring and Fall are the best times to plant a tree. NWF wants to plant 75,000 trees this year and you can help. Visit Trees for Wildlife and order tree kits or get step by step instructions on how to plant and care for a tree. It's as easy as one, two, tree!

Trees are pretty special, so why not find one to play with today? Whether you swing from a tree tire swing, watch birds make a nest, climb up a tree or just give one a hug, it's good for you to Be Out There and tree-mendously entertaining!

Celebrating trees are just a few of the ways to help NWF get 10 million kids outside by 2015. Learn more about why you should Be Out There at Learn more about trees and download an awesome tree poster at
