Give ‘em a hug
OK, it’s official. If you are a tree hugger, tomorrow’s your day. National Tree Hugger Day is at the Jefferson Memorial in D.C., from noon to 3 p.m. American Forests, known for its "Global ReLeaf" restoration projects, is putting it on, and thanking IKEA for its contributions that made it possible to plant a million trees. Along with music, food and crafts, a "Community Tree Hug" will take place at 1:30. Huggers will also gather in Chicago and Los Angeles. For more details click here.
