Outdoor Curriculum

Enjoy the following Natural Resource curriculum from New York State 4-H. 

Forestry Friday - This on-going series in 2020 introduces youth to common and some uncommon species of trees around New York, and possibly beyond. They will learn about using a dichotomous key to identify a tree to genus and species. Interested parties should watch the videos in order. The answer to the previous week is presented in the first minutes of the following week’s video. If you go in order, you will be given the chance to determine what the species is BEFORE you get the answer. Yes, there’s a little work to this. You should use the booklet, Know Your Trees by Winch, et al. 2004 here: https://ecommons.cornell.edu/handle/1813/86
