Forestry Camp at Brooker Creek

I attended a Forestry Camp at Brooker Creek this week. It was called Teens for Trees.We learned about urban forestry, insects, diseases, the value of a tree and so much more. We got to plant a tree at Brooker to replace the one struck by lightning.  We learned how to properly clean up a tree and trim it. Urban Forestry came out and gave a wonderful demonstration on proper techniques. We learned about run off and how certain fertilizers can pollute the waterways in addition to oils and gasoline.This was an AMAZING camp and I hope they do it again in the future and more kids attend.
