Cadette The Forest Around Us

The grounds of Liberty Hall contain many unusual specimens of trees.  We’ll learn how to identify different types of trees and learn the important roles trees play in daily life from Early American times to present day.  We’ll study the growth rings of a massive tree felled by Hurricane Sandy and learn what those rings can tell us about the life of a tree. In addition, scouts will learn how to identify four common plants from Liberty Hall’s herb garden.   Scouts will make a booklet of bark rubbings to take home that will aid in identification of their own neighborhood trees. Meets the requirements of the Cadette Tree Badge.
