Most people don’t know this, but Roberta Gibson studied forest entomology as an undergraduate and one of her favorite classes was dendrology. She switched to studying ants later, but still has a fondness for trees. Her current passion is encouraging budding young naturalists and scientists at Growing with Science blog, which is where she is hosting our milestone 50th edition of the Festival of the Trees.
Roberta asks that we consider submitting child-friendly posts. Ideas include sharing bark rubbings, children’s drawings of trees and leaves, ideas for or photographs of tree houses, nature journals with tree themes, photos from a favorite walk through the woods, science experiment ideas, etc. If you want some serious inspiration, she suggests you take a look at Rachel Carson’s book The Sense of Wonder.
Let’s see if we can get 50 posts for festival #50.
