Making like a tree

Chelsea Boston and Baylee Carpenter at the project learning tree station Thursday during Forestry Awareness Week Now. Their chaperone, Amanda Brazelton, demonstrates how to act tough, like the last layer of tree bark, as students make a human tree.

Alabama Forestry Association, Alabama Forestry Commission, Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge, Tennessee Valley Authority, National Resources Conservation Service and area industries teamed together for the 14th year to put on FAWN.

It is conducted at Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge for sixth-grade Morgan County students in the first week of May. City sixth-graders participate in the fourth week of September.

Students visit seven stations, including sawmill, forest products, tree identification, wildlife, soil and water, forest management, and project learning tree.
