Conservation District Creates Awareness about School Forests

October 28, 2019by ncdea

MICHIGAN, Missaukee CD – Mark Johnson, an agriscience instructor at Wexford-Missaukee Intermediate School District, is teaching his students about the industry of forestry; but they’re not just sitting in the classroom, he’s taking their work outside.

“School forests are one great way that schools can incorporate a natural resource curriculum into what otherwise might be a general science or environmental studies sort of class,” says Johnson.

In a recent poll by the Missaukee Conservation District, only some Wexford-Missaukee intermediate school district teachers know that they have this outdoor resource. That’s why the Missaukee Conservation District wants to raise awareness and help teachers for all ages take their lessons out of the classroom.
