About the Program
In Legends of the Forest, Darcee teaches kids how to identify trees, plants, and insects that grow and live in our backyards and in our forests. Students get to know our woods by taking time to stop, listen, taste, and notice things as small as a tiny mushroom all the way up to a tall Grand Fir tree. Includes discussion on the importance of balancing harvesting, fire management, pest management, and proper preservation of wildlife and parks.
"Legends of the Forest" is a series of books (including "Leonard the Larch" and "Cedric the Cedar") written to connect kids and nature. The series teaches kids how to identify trees and encourages them to create a relationship with their environment.
