How does a forest begin to change as it grows? How does it absorb carbon from the atmosphere? What kind of impacts do disturbances like fire and harvesting have on the landscape? How do we use this information to make decisions about the forest? How do we decide what happens and where?

Exploring a growing forest, students will be presented with many questions regarding the management of forests throughout their lifecycle. Using their own critical thought and experimentation, students will examine forest management decisions up close.
