“The Importance of Oak” offered to Teachers at Vinton Furnace and Zaleski State Forests Features Tour of Speyside Bourbon Cooperage

***14th Annual TEACHER FIELD DAYS***  

The Importance of Oak

Seeing the forest for the trees!

 Please join us for two days in the woods Tuesday, June 12 and Wednesday, June 13, 2018 (9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) at beautiful Vinton Furnace State Forest and Zaleski State Forest. The Forestry on Ohio’s Public Lands Series is offered by the ODNR Division of Forestry to provide your students with timely concepts and to help you meet state standards. Come learn more about our diverse and critically important forest landscape, and why oak trees are the keystone species critical to the ecological and economic well-being of southeast Ohio–all from researchers studying them at Vinton Furnace State Forest.

The Importance of Oak instruction and field experience is featured on Tuesday, and a Project Learning Tree educator certification workshop is offered Wednesday. You can attend one (Tuesday) or both days, but need to attend Tuesday in order to participate Wednesday. Graduate credit is available for your purchase if you attend both days and complete the assigned follow up requirements.

Programs are open to ANY teacher/all grades, and take place RAIN OR SHINE. Dress for the woods, weather, and field work. We will be outside Tuesday afternoon for a field trip by hay wagon around the state forest, so wear appropriate footwear, clothing, and bug spray.
