Urban Ag Fest – Talk About Trees is one of many partners participating in Urban Ag Fest today and tomorrow in Salem. It’s always great to see kids engaged in hands-on science education!
Talk About Trees has been busy this school year, visitng Oregon classrooms and helping out with many events including: Home School Day at the Oregon Garden, Wood Magic in Corvallis, Forest Field Days in Lane County, Forest Careers Day at the World Forestry Center in Portland, Teacher’s Night Out in Bend and Tsalila Education Days in Reedsport. More events are scheduled in the months ahead!
Last week in Klamath County, TAT facilitator, Lisa Kochenderfer participated in the 55th annual Klamath County Forestry Tour. TAT partnered with BLM, Oregon Department of Forestry, Fremont-Winema U.S. Forest Service, Winema Hoo-Hoo Club, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and Green Diamond Resource Company to provide hands on forest education to Klamath County School District sixth-graders. Students learned about forest products, fire control, recreation, reforestation, soil and water, forest management and tree identification.
Throughout the school year, TAT seeks opportunities to partner with other agencies and organizations to provide high quality, hands-on forest education.
