Indian Community School students attend Trees For Tomorrow

April 20, 2014

EAGLE RIVER – Eight students from Indian Community School in Franklin learned about deer ecology, papermaking, Wisconsin’s logging history, human survival skills, radio telemetry and using a map and compass during a recent visit to Trees For Tomorrow in Eagle River.

It was the first year for Indian Community School to bring students to a workshop at Trees For Tomorrow – a private, nonprofit natural resources specialty school. The workshops provide students with hands-on learning activities in an outdoor environment.

“Students gained a deeper appreciation for our natural resources,” said Anita O’Leary, a teacher who accompanied the students. “They’re learning to be good observers or investigators to explore their world.”

A highlight of the April 2-4 trip was when the students learned about radio telemetry and used map and compass skills, O’Leary said.

“It was really fun when the students divided into two groups to see who could find a radio collar hidden in the woods first. Despite falling through snow up to our knees, it was a blast.”

Trees For Tomorrow is an accredited nonprofit natural resources specialty school that serves school groups throughout Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois. It provides both daylong and multi-day educational workshops focusing on natural resources management.

Teachers choose from more than 50 courses to customize workshops that best meet the needs of their students.

Financial support from Ina Trummer, a longtime Trees For Tomorrow supporter, made it possible for the Indian Community School students to attend the educational workshop at Trees For Tomorrow.
