Activity 1: Young Forest
Why do we harvest trees? In what ways do we use forest products? What kind of planning goes into a harvest before it happens? What happens after a harvest? What kinds of trees are harvested and planted in Alberta? Who makes sure the forest comes back? What kinds of plants and animals thrive in a young forest ecosystem? Why?
Guided by Nathan Fillion, students will follow along and explore a young forest a few years after harvest. Using the VR tool and other resources, students will discover and come up with their own answers.
