Forestry 4-H Project Area

The “Forests of Fun” curriculum opens the world of forests to youths. At every level, activities involve you in learning about trees, forests, forest ecology and human reliance on forests. Discover forest resources near home and around the world. Each booklet contains activities for three years.

Reach for the Canopy (Forestry 2) has you taking a closer look at the inner-workings of trees, exploring forest change, learning about forest health and discovering the health benefits trees have on people.

In Explore the Deep Woods (Forestry 3), you will examine and distinguish different types of trees, look at forests on a global scale, learn to care for trees and think about how to conserve forests.
