For Educators

There are awesome opportunities for forestry and education to overlap.
Our forests are the ultimate classrooms. They inspire. They motivate. They challenge our students to wonder and wander.
It is my hope that this site, this book, and the continuing monthly columns will hold some small role in linking educators to forests, woods to students, foresters to classrooms, and together we'll grow a society that honors trees and people.
For those reading the book in classrooms or reading groups, here are some suggestions for discussion questions.
Here are some quotes from The Forester's Log: Musings from the Woods that may be useful for class discussions, bulletin boards, or other uses.
Many environmental education programs and opportunities are mentioned in The Forester's Log: Musings from the Woods as well as subsequent columns.
Here are links to many of these programs.
