Talk About Trees

Let's talk about trees! Students will learn the biology and importance of trees. This hour long class can be taken either as a day class or a night class. Once they have formed a special connection with these photosynthesizing beauties, students will each be given a tree cookie necklace in which they get to create nature names. If students participate in this class, they will get a bead to add to their tree cookie necklaces for each class they take.
