Isn't it beautiful? That's where I am right now! (Okay, not really... that's actually just a random picture of a forest I found on Google.) Close enough though! For the next few days, I will be... somewhere... for an environmental school competition. The competition focuses on soil, forestry, aquatics and wildlife (I'm the aquatics expert!) and I know you're all actually really fascinated by that stuff, so I'll give you a few fun facts.
- It takes over 500 years for 2 cm of topsoil to grow.
- Ontario has around 85 billion trees - now you say 'wow!'
- White pine trees have 5 needles (red pine have 2)
- Beavers are rodents!
- The four types of wetlands are bogs, fens, marshes and swamps
So now that you are sufficiently educated in the matters of forestry, wildlife, aquatics and soil, I shall leave you to ponder what you can do to save our earth. Hope you have a great week! <3
Hey look, a stream!
