Forestry Field Day!
We went to the Hartley nature center for forestry field day. We had to walk from station to station, and at each one, we learned different things about the forest, like how to tell how old a tree is, what animals bother and help a tree, and we also learned that, for example, if you were to hammer a nail into a tree, it wouldn’t grow up any higher than were you nailed it because the tree would grow outward, instead of upward.
At another station, we learned about how to tell a deer skull from a moose skull, and how to tell female skull from the male skull of an animal with antlers. Even if the animal had lost its antlers before it died. The difference is that the skull of the animal that’s antlers have fallen off, still have kind of a base were the antlers would have came out, which a females skull wouldn’t have.
At another station, we learned about the different types of soil, which are sand, clay, silt. The sand felt soft and grainy, the clay felt hard, sticky, and smooth all at the same time. And the silt, (which had to be substituted with flour.), felt soft, and fine. We also learned about what animals lived in soil.
