Forest Ecology

On the Ecology Trail, students investigate the connection between living and non-living elements of the forest ecosystem. Students visit different areas of the forest, examine changes in biotic and abiotic factors, and draw conclusions about natural relationships between plants and their surroundings. Students also learn how to use a dichotomous key to identify local trees and shrubs, including pines and cedars over 300 years old.
