Exploring the Urban Forest

Students are introduced to the concepts of biodiversity, environmental health, and habitats as they learn to act as street tree stewards.  On two neighborhood walks, students identify and assess the health of trees in the neighborhood.  They apply this knowledge in the classroom to build models of an urban forest.
