Forestry Students Provide Hands-On Ecology Lessons For Local Schools

May 25, 2011


Nearly 200 local grade school and high school students from the Carbondale area spent a day learning about the environment in an outreach project conducted by the Forestry Department. Dr. Erin Seekamp, Asst. Professor of Forestry, coordinated the efforts with graduate and undergraduate students in her “Fundamentals of Environmental Education” class.  One of the goals of the project was to provide SIUC students with experience in developing and delivering environmental education programs.  Some of the ecology topics covered included pond, lake, stream, forest and wildlife.  Read more at the link below.   Be sure to check-out the YouTube video about the class!
