Environmental Tree Awareness Curriculum

2013 | Hiram College 

With support from the TREE Fund, Hiram College will deliver our Environmental Tree Awareness (ETA) curriculum as part of our highly-successful Igniting Streams of Learning in Science (ISLS) STEM Academy Program. ISLS is a collaborative of educators, scientists, students and local citizens dedicated to improving learning in science through inquiry into natural environments. This project will extend principles of urban forestry and their positive impacts on watersheds into high-school STEM curricula by providing teachers with field books and supplies. The ETA curricula are aligned to Ohio Model Curriculum high-school science course standards, and incorporate elements that allow high-school students to develop a school specific curriculum on urban trees through hands-on learning.

See the fun!

Check out our photos from the 2014 STIHL Tour des Trees and ISA Conference (including the auctions).

Bartlett Tree Experts co-sponsored a symposium with the Chicago Botanic Gardens that we called 'Trees as a Legacy in Design and Development.' We had world class speakers including Peter Walker, the co-creator of the 9/11 National Memorial. Three out of our five speakers cited research they conducted that was made in part due to TREE Fund dollars! It was amazing to hear Dr. Michael Raupp, Dr. Kathy Wolf and Dr. Kelby Fite all mention the TREE Fund as contributing to their work. This is applied research at its best. When research projects such as these funded by the TREE Fund are centerpieces of conference talks I know our fundraising efforts are in the right direction. What made this even better was that the audience was NOT arborists. TREE Fund dollars were talking to landscape architects, architects, planners and government officials. There is not better advertisement for the TREE Fund than to hear applied research education allied professions to make the world a better place through trees.
