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.

The TREE Fund is invaluable to our research in the Morton Arboretum Soil Science (MASS) laboratory. A major goal of our lab is to perform research on managing urban soil quality with the intent of improving urban tree establishment and growth. The outcomes of the research have direct application to horticulture, arboriculture, and urban forestry. The TREE Fund is one of the only institutions in the world funding this type of research. Without the TREE Fund this research would not be conducted.
