So grateful for the Idaho Project Learning Tree for the wonderful Professional Development Weekend we had at Riverstone this weekend. They introduced us to Curb It and the amazing recycling program they have in Boise that I am hoping to help implement in the City of Nampa, and in my own school. Lot's of discussions and hurdles to over come first, but now I have the connections to help that on it's way.

Facebook is the perfect place to share Project Learning Tree information and all the wonderful programs they have and what they do. I encourage educators K-12 to check them out and see what they are all about. The hands on education and field trips are amazing for teachers and students alike. Let's spread the word.
One of the great things about Idaho is all the beautiful outdoor spaces we have! Educators, Idaho Project Learning Tree workshops help you use nature to engage children in learning – both outside and indoors!

Great opportunity for high school teachers. School counselors - this is available to you, too!

📣Thru the Trees Video Contest has two great opportunities for High School Teachers!

1️⃣First, we will buy you a great teaching resource! As you may know, forest careers provide rewarding jobs that help move us towards greener economies and a more sustainable lifestyle. You can share these awesome opportunities with your students via engaging activities from Project Learning Tree’s “Green Jobs: Exploring Forest Careers” guide! Thru the Trees Video Contest will fund the electronic coursework for your class, including a quiz that each student can take to see where they might fit in this amazing industry. These would be available to you with a link/code that you can use to download the information immediately. If you would benefit more from a printed guide, we can assist you by having a copy sent directly to your classroom! The course/guide provides four hands-on instructional activities that can be used together or alone that raise awareness about forest sector careers. Learn more by visiting the PLT website, https://shop.plt.org/Shop/ProductDetails/green-jobs. 🌲

2️⃣Second, we are offering you entry for a $500 CASH PRIZE! Our video contest, which is for high school students, ages 14-18, in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington, is designed to engage interest in forest careers. Students are asked to research a forest job and then creatively share about that job in video form. Students must submit under the guidance of a teacher. For each contest entry by one of your students, you are entered into a raffle for a $500 cash prize! Learn more about this exciting contest at www.thruthetrees.org. 🌲

The world's largest organism is slowly being eaten by deer

Here is a fascinating real world case study for students to analyze. What management approaches would they propose?

The world's largest organism is slowly being eaten by deer In the Wasatch Mountains of the western US on the slopes above a spring-fed lake, there dwells a single giant organism that provides an entire ecosystem on which plants and animals have relied for thousands of years. Found in my home state of Utah, "Pando" is a 106-acre stand of quaking aspen clones...

#BLMBODFire and Idaho Department of Lands firefighters worked together earlier this week to conduct controlled burning of juniper piles in the vicinity of Cow Creek Road, located about 9 miles NE of Jordan Valley, OR. They took advantage of good burning conditions on Monday, knowing that rains would be coming on Tuesday. The joint force first burned piles that are part of the BLM’s Soda Fire Fuel Breaks project before moving over to state lands to burn piles as part of their own juniper reduction efforts.

Looking ahead to 2022, we need the help of all Boiseans to meet our City of Trees Challenge goals! We'll be expanding our efforts to plant more trees in Boise neighborhoods of greatest need, while growing our partnerships with local nurseries. We also pan to double our forest seedling plantings in the Boise National Forest and offer cities across the U.S. an opportunity to join in the City of Trees Challenge.

Thanks to our partners Treasure Valley Canopy Network and The Nature Conservancy in Idaho for assisting us in this effort! Learn more about our efforts to increase Boise's tree canopy and more:

In Oregon's forests, well over 40 million seedlings are planted every year. Most of the seedlings come from a seedling nursery. Seedling nursery managers coordinate the planting, care and processing of millions of seedlings in the ground as well as in greenhouses.
