We think trees are neat. Apparently the @ncc_ccn does as well since they designated 150 remarkable trees in our capital region. Did you know this? They have plaques and everything. And did you realize that hugging a tree releases the same hormones that leave us feeling calm and relaxed?! Even as little as 2hrs a week in nature is associated with an increase in overall wellbeing. I mean, we can’t hug each other right now, but you betcha we can hug a tree for health’s sake. #gohugatreenotme #pandemiclife


1. CAPTURE a picture of you hugging a tree (in your yard, the park, or local trail).
