Boise Community Forestry has flexible, tree-related
educational and volunteer opportunities. These opportunities
can be tailored to different audiences, interests and needs.
Boise's Community Forest consists of trees along the streets,
in our parks, along the Boise Greenbelt and even in the foothills.
This makes for a great natural classroom to experience hands-on
science and our natural environment.
Community Forestry is in the process of creating new tree
education programs with a special emphasis on Boise's youth. Tree
literacy is imperative for the perpetuation of Boise's community
forest and it must start with today's children.
Community Forestry is an invaluable resource for tree education.
We are excited to assist and compliment your lesson plans in a
variety of ways on any tree-related topic, from tree biology to
tree identification! Here are just a few ways Community Forestry
can benefit your classroom:
Lectures: Tree structure,
function, and biology, tree identification, tree care, tree pests,
Activities: Crafts, plant
personification game, tree identification, and more
Literature: Preschool through
high school literary sources, both science-based and those just for
Projects: Tree tours, tree
planting and more
