A big part of the event is always been educating youth. The year the “In the Woods” education days will be held September 25 and 26.
Professional foresters will guide each group. Students will participate in hands-on activities that tie in with STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education. They will see innovative tree harvesting technology, learn how today’s practices protect habitat and water quality for fish and wildlife, and be exposed to an array of forest-related careers.
Classroom materials are provided for teachers, and reimbursement for buses to and from your school is available.
The event is fully insured and free of charge. It runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day, and each group will need two to three hours for the tour. Hard hats will be provided for every student.
