The Forestry Florida's Fabulous Forests Project Book (4HFOM13) is the third 4-H Project Book in the Forest Resources series and for youth ages 12-18. It includes 17 engaging activities (each with reflective questions) and 47 ideas for additional projects and challenges. Youth explore 10 different kinds of forests in Florida: 8 natural ecosystems, the urban forest, and pine plantations. The activities also lead youth through an understanding of forest management, forest systems (wildlife, water, and soil), and forest management issues: wildfire and prescribed fire, forest insect and diseases, and invasive exotic plants.
Youth who enjoy identifying forest plants may wish to compete in the annual 4-H Forest Ecology Contest. See www.sfrc.ufl.edu/4h for additional information.
