Boise Community Forestry
The City of Trees is our home and besides beauty, those trees provide us with many environmental benefits that enhance our daily lives.
Community Forestry as a division of Boise Parks and Recreation, is an invaluable resource for environmental education. Community Forestry will gladly come to your classroom or provide you with information on any tree-related topic, from tree biology to tree benefits!
"If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder . . . he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in." Rachel Carson
Here are a few ways Community Forestry can benefit your classroom:
Lectures: Tree structure, function, and biology, tree identification, tree care, tree pests, and more.
Activities: Crafts, plant personification game, tree identification, and more.
