Learn about Oregon’s forests from your home

OREGON — An organization is making it possible for kids to learn all about forests from the safety of their homes.

The Oregon Forest Resources Institute built a stay-at-home guide of mini-lessons all about the great outdoors. All lessons are separated into grade levels, complete with workbooks, activities, videos and more.

Plus good news for teachers – the lessons are all aligned with state learning standards.

All resources can be found on their website: learnforests.org
