Darley Newman and the National Forest Foundation hosted a National Forest Facebook Watch Party to kick off this year’s National Forest Week.
The Watch Party took place on Thursday, July 9th and featured segments from Travels with Darley episodes that had never streamed on Facebook before. Darley presented the content from her NYC home, sharing an hour and a half of beautiful footage filmed in forests from California to New York and was online LIVE to answer questions and respond to comments during the chat.
