There are three or four field days scheduled annually, in September (check Extension Calendar). 4-H youth aged 9 to 13 are eligible to participate. During this one day program, youth are taught and tested on the basics of tree identification, tree measurement, and the use of a compass and measuring distances by pacing. In the afternoon session, the participants experience “Wood Magic”, which raises their awareness of the importance of forest products.
