(geared for Middle, Jr. High and Sr. High educators)
Forestry jobs in Arkansas pay a 134% higher salary than
the statewide average, yet many of those positions go
unfilled. Educating youth in the field of forestry is vital
at filling these in-demand careers.
Green jobs represent one of the fastest growing and
changing segments of the global economy. At the same
time, today’s youth are seeking rewarding careers that
help us move toward more sustainable lifestyles and
greener economies. Some of the most exciting—and
perhaps greenest jobs—involve forests.
Join us for this PD event featuring Project Learning
Tree’s Green Jobs: Exploring Forest Careers. This unit
includes four hands-on, NGSS aligned, instructional
activities to help youth research forestry jobs, and
practice managing and monitoring forest resources.
The afternoon session will be conducted in the field
with foresters from Green Bay Packaging. We will learn
about a variety of forestry careers and see examples of
sustainable forestry practices used to maintain healthy
forests

Click here for more information about Project Learning Tree and this curriculum: https://www.plt.org/curriculum/focus-on-forests/ Part 2: Project Learning Tree and the University of Florida developed this award winning material to help educators in the Southeast teach about climate change impacts on forest ecosystems, the role of forests in sequestering carbon, and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to changing climatic conditions. While this resource was created with southeastern forests in mind, the lessons that comprise this module can be used with students across the United States.

We are scheduling a Stream Team outing for Tuesday, June 22nd, subject to possible tropical weather.  It looks to be quite a bit cooler early next week so it should be ideal for getting out and collecting some critters.  We still want to practice social distancing and recommend bringing along a mask for anticipated close quarters when viewing around the critter trays, but we will not be limiting the size of the group.   

We plan to do chemical testing and biological counts at our adopted area of the middle fork of the Saline River at Middle Fork Barrens.  We will meet in the Tanners parking lot (25255 AR-5, Lonsdale, AR 72087) at 0830 to convoy and plan to be at the trail gate on Burk Road (34.639185, -92.842505) at 0900.
