This is a brand new offering for Harding's summer program. There are over 30 different species of trees on Harding's campus. Students will learn about the importance of trees and other plants as natural factories that take potentially harmful carbon from the air and store that carbon in their roots, trunks, stems and leaves, and put back into the air life-giving oxygen. Nature's air filters! They will roam about campus, getting up close and personal with our trees and learn new terminology describing bark and leaves, and even get a primer on identifying trees by their leaf structure and their scientific names. They will learn how to determine the age of trees by counting rings in cross sections. They will even get a bit about the uses of different kinds of wood! They will make things with wood-related crafts. Who knows? We may even roast a marshmallow or two!
