Classroom in the Forest/Forest in the Classroom
2016 Forest in the Classroom/Classroom in the Forest
Conecuh County Forestry Committee held its annual Classroom in the Forest Tuesday, April 26th at Bookers Mill. Five stations were setup to teach the local 5th graders different aspects of the forest and how important it is to keep a healthy forest. Our stations included Nature Crafts, Hayride, Skins & Skulls, Creatures of the Forest and Tree and Plant Identification.
Forest in the Classroom is held two weeks prior to the Classroom in the Forest. Two teams from the forestry committee went to each 5th grade classroom in Conecuh County to prepare the students for the field trip. Each team consist of a 1) Resource Provider to discuss resources of the forest; 2) Private Landowner to explain the important position a landowner has in taking care the forest; 3) Stakeholder to talked about how important the forestland is to everyone, and the many benefits we receive from a healthy forest.
