Describe the complexity in a forest ecosystem and how humans interact with it.
Based in the unique Forest Ecology Building, students will travel through the woods gaining a balanced appreciation of both the living forest and wood as a harvested resource. Field work may involve planting, brushing around seedlings, and bud capping. Students will be challenged to make a simple forest management plan and choose ways to manage personal consumption to maintain forest sustainability.
This is an all-day class (with lunch served at the Forest Ecology Building) paired with either Stream Study, Fisheries Management, Beavers, Animal Signs, or Cross-country Skiing. One adult is recommended to accompany this class.
