Certainly, April proved to be an unusual month for GBI and its field personnel. The suspension of field activities impeded our monthly media contest, but leave it to our people to rally in the face of obstacles and submit the great images included in the gallery below.
Our winner this month is AmeriCorps member Jake Weinberger, who submitted the above photo. Jake explains: “While stuck at home, as an environmental educator with Galena Creek Visitor Center and AmeriCorps, I created a video plus an at-home learning resource for kids about tree rings and [how] they are used by foresters to determine forest age and health.” Additionally, Jake shared a link to the video, viewable HERE. The full lesson is available under “Tree Cookies” on the Galena Creek Visitor Center’s Learning Resources page at galenacreekvisitorcenter.org/learning-resources.html.
