Do you know how to calculate how many board feet of lumber that can be produced from a mature tree? Ever thought of finally mastering identifying trees in winter? Have you ever used an aerial photo to help analyze surrounding ecosystems for resources for wildlife or for determining potential water pollution sources? On the off chance that you don’t have a back hoe to dig your own soil pit, maybe you’d like a chance to measure soil horizons with Dr. Dirt himself? All this and more at Mass Envirothon’s workshop for coaches on Saturday October 1. Spend the day outside with natural resource professionals learning how to apply knowledge and work with new and experienced coaches to plan how to share this knowledge with your team.
