International Forest Day Twitter Party!

March 19, 2020

Saturday is UN International Day of Forests!

Here’s everything you need to know about my International Day of Forests Twitter Party!

When it is?

Saturday, March 21, from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM Eastern Time.

Do I have to have a Twitter account?

Nope! Twitter is 100% public and free. You can view all of the content I will be posting – fun facts, cute photos, links to resources – on my Twitter page:

Lindsey’s Twitter Feed

Note, you will need a Twitter account to enter the giveaway. More on that below.

Will any other authors be there?

I am so please to announce that kid lit creators Darren Lebeuf and Carmen Oliver will be special guests at this event! You can follow all of their posts here:

I’m on Twitter: how can I participate?

Like, tweet, comment, retweet! The more the merrier.

#IntlForestDay is the official hashtag for the UN event. You can also email forest-themed photos to for possible inclusion in the UN’s official Day of Forests gallery.

And, of course, you can enter to win the giveaway!
