Florida Forestry Teacher Tour 2012

One of the perks of teaching is the interesting workshops you are able to attend.  Earlier this year I was awarded a grant to attend the Florida Forestry Teacher Tour.  The tour was amazing!!!! We toured different paper mills (non-stinky ones), lumber mills, chemical factories, and different nature reserves. I have a new appreciation for Forestry.  It was really cool to learn that the Florida lumber/paper industry is now a sustainable/renewable industry.  I had to re-adjust my old Lorax mentally. They are actually planting more trees than are harvested.   Below are some pictures that I took at the different locations.

If you are an educator I highly recommend attending this.  It doesn’t matter what subject area or grade level you teach.  Great tour!
