    Compared to Earth Day and Easter, Arbor Day gets little recognition each April. If you lack the resources to plant a tree this year, why not visit one of the oldest forests in the world? These seven are all beautiful reminders to protect our trees. © Filipe Frazao | Dreamstime.com
  • Tarkine
    In Australia, the Tarkine Forest houses 3,000-year-old pine trees along with some Tasmanian devils. The temperate rainforest, the second-largest on earth, looks like a step back in time, more suitable for dinosaurs than adventurous travelers. © Houani | Dreamstime.com
  • Tongass
    Across the world in Alaska, Tongass National Forest offers 16.8 million acres of trees. The diverse wildlife includes Alaskan classics, from grizzly bears to salmon, and the forest boasts more organic matter per acre than any other. © Jerry Murphy | Dreamstime.com
  • Pando Aspen
    The Pando Aspen Grove in Utah is unique because it behaves like a single organism. Scientists guess the forest — all interconnected via one root system — is up to 1 million years old. © Clifton Smith | Dreamstime.com
  • Kakamega
    Kakamega Forest in Kenya was at one time the largest old-growth forest in the world, at a whopping 2 million years old. Unfortunately, this rainforest diminished greatly over the last few decades. Now it covers a mere 90 square miles. © Ivkuzmin | Dreamstime.com
  • Borneo
    Similarly, the Borneo Lowland Rainforest, approximately 140 million years old, is shrinking quickly due to climate change and deforestation. Residents include endangered orangutans and the world’s smallest squirrels. © Fabio Lamanna | Dreamstime.com

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes.

Holiday Light Show at Shady Brook Farm

Streets lined with festive holiday lights and decorations is a tell-tale sign the holidays are right around the corner. My favorite holiday tradition is going to Shady Brook Farm in Yardley, Pennsylvania, and driving through the Holiday Light Show. My family and I have gone pretty much every year since I was a little girl.
