Into the Redwood Forest
New teachers accepted to Into the Redwood Forest must attend the Teacher Workshop on January 5, 2013.
Your class discovers the magic of Muir Woods National Monument, which preserves one of the last remaining old-growth redwood forests in the Bay Area. The program weaves science, art, and journaling to introduce students to Muir Woods' history and habitats. Students collect and organize data, link plant and animal communities within the forest, and represent these interdependent communities through artistic explorations, such as drawings and three-dimensional models.
