NRES 624 Enhancing School Forest Education
This one credit graduate level course will help you utilize your school forest as an outdoor classroom. You will become familiar with the forest, look closely at educational resources, and infuse your curriculum with lessons that can be taught at the school forest. We will focus on the school forest ecosystem, invasive species, curriculum connections, environmental education resources and lessons, and community resources. The participant will create a school forest field trip for their class as a culminating project.
