STEM Blackrock

This is an interdisciplinary unit with separate write-ups for plant life, wildlife, geology and soils, human impacts, and environmental measurements, which can be pursued together or separately. A hike leading from the Center for Science and Education to the White Oak Tree includes ten stops, each representing a different habitat found in the Forest. At each stop, Forest staff have collected information about wildlife, plant life, geology and soils, environmental measurements, and human impacts. The theme or themes of the hike should be chosen by instructors based on the class level and interest. That theme can then be continued through the hike. Generally, the wildlife and plant life classes are suggested for younger grades and the others are for more advanced classes. The time needed to complete each class is about 3-4 hours.
