Springfield, MO. The current six-week program, our second, will focus on trees.
With the word Wildlife in the name, why would we spend six weeks studying and observing trees?
I am so glad you asked! Trees provide so much for wildlife and humans! Aside from building materials and paper products for humans, trees provide habitat, food, and shelter for wildlife. Amphibians, reptiles, birds, insects all rely on trees for various reasons.
These are but a few reasons why studying trees and understanding their role in our ecosystem is important.
We are looking forward to working with the participants in this spring's Wildlife HERO and can't wait to see the excitement on the faces of these young people as they explore and share the beauty of trees!
