Forest Ecology Issues (Grades 9 through 12)
Minnesota has four biomes, two of which are forest biomes. Why are forests important not just for wildlife but humans as well? Through group activities and discussions, students will explore Minnesota forests and forest issues. Topics will include basic tree structure and functions, forest composition, forest succession, the role fire plays in forests, invasive species, and how we use our forests. Each week there will be reading assignments to be completed before the next session for discussion.
