“There’s a lot to be learned from a log”
Practical forestry activity. Between tree rings, bark identification and much more, you’ll realize just how much there is to learn from a log. You’ll get your very own slice off a log, also known as a “tree cookie”. Sorry they’re not so good to eat but we’ll have materials so you can sand and oil your cookie to bring out the grain and turn it into the perfect beer coaster.
