At the forestry station, students learn all about trees. Students are able to look at tree samples while they learned what they can be used for and the many different values like shade, energy conservation, remembrance of others and many, many more. After instructor from the Nez Perce County Forestry Advisory Board give an overview of different tree types, the students are shown samples and then asked to see if they can name them. They seem to have a great time and even get to take home their own Ponderosa pine and Tamarack to plant.
