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.

Trees are not an amenity that can be neglected when the economy gets tight. This is a way to provide for their care into the future, and to make sure that the safety programs that protect our workforce continue to evolve. I didn’t make this decision [to become a Heritage Oak Society member] because I was asked; I did it because it’s important. We all have a role to play in planning for the future of our trees.
