Outreach _ The Next Generation

Teachers and Chestnuts

Based on a couple of conversations at the PA Farm Show we are hoping to engage some middle school and high school teachers in an effort to formalize some lessons about the science of our American chestnut restoration mission. We don’t have a curriculum to promote. We would like to learn from you how we can bring our mission and research to young scientists. If you are a teacher interested in joining this discussion please contact Jean: at mail@patacf.org | 814-863-7192

American Chestnut Activity Sheet | Work from Home

Forest restoration is a multigenerational mission. It is critical that we educate the public about the history of this native tree, its significant role in our forest ecosystem, and our progress to restore it. We have some decent materials for adults but we want to do more to connect with children if we want to ensure three is the next generation to take up the work. We are seeking guidance from professional educators to develop targeted activities for a children’s activity sheet. We want to start with a 2-sided 8 by 14 sheet with activities for a variety of ages. Once we have content we will seek assistance from graphic artists to create an attractive layout.

We can work on this remotely over email and zoom as needed.
