On May 19th the Buckeye Trail 6th grade class came out to Guernsey SWCD’s Moore Memorial Woods for a fun day of learning about what natural resources can be found in forests around Guernsey County. We'd like to say a huge thank you to all the teachers who helped bring the kids out and a special thank you to Dave Schott from Noble SWCD, and Anna Hodges for helping teach the kids. the kids went around to five different stations where they learned how to identify and measure trees, learned how to identify different mammal furs and skulls, how to use a compass to navigate, multiple species of plants and different uses of them on a nature hike, and finally they made a custom t-shirt with paint and used leaves and items they found in the forest to decorate them with.
