Alabama has a wealth of forest related natural resources. It is the third most forested US state - two out of every three acres in Alabama is forested!
This hands-on camp will give students an opportunity to get outdoors and learn about forestry in Alabama and the importance of forestry field measurements in making forest management decisions. Taught by ACES and SFWS forestry professionals, Forestry Field Camp is open to high school students ages 15-18. Due to the outdoor activities and hands-on projects this camp is limited to 25 students. Students will learn how to take forest tree measurements, sample forests for inventory information and use a professional grade GPS for a geocaching adventure around Auburn's campus. Camp will conclude with a fun forestry conclave activity where students have the opportunity to compete in technical events such as compass and pacing, and tree diameter and height estimation to showcase their newly acquired skills.
