In her wise and elegant new book, “Seeds of Hope: Wisdom and Wonder from the World of Plants,” Dr. Jane Goodall with Gail Hudson, blends her experience in nature with her enthusiasm for botany to give readers a deeper understanding of the world around us. Continuing their exploration here, Dr. Goodall provides ideas and inspiration for what readers can do to get involved in and protect the world of plants.

Forests provide an ideal getaway whether it’s adventure you seek or simply quiet time to commune with the world’s oldest living organisms. If you are in a foreign location—look for environmentally conscious guides to lead you through these magical places. Discussing your personal experiences with forests will also educate others about the importance of saving these valuable resources, which are disappearing at an alarming rate.
