Abstract or Summary
  • The conference, Oregon Forests: Pathways to Student Success was used to bring natural resource professionals and school district educators together to discuss what is needed to ensure the sustainability of forestry education in Oregon’s K-12 classrooms and to make plans for it to happen in their school districts. Using this conference as the background, we will discuss how school administrators, teachers and forestry education providers established common goals, networked, strengthened partnerships and identified potential funding opportunities. This presentation will highlight place-based education models that enhance student performance with relevant, hands-on education experiences. We will share what we discovered about increasing forestry education in school districts statewide. This will include sharing success stories like that of Tillamook School District educators and community members who are using forestry/natural resources education to enhance learning in K-12 classrooms. This session will also cover details about the two-day conference and how five-member teams from school districts statewide are using forestry to meet district ESL needs, assessment, state standards and professional development models for teachers. We will discuss how community-based education, such as using local forests can engage students and improve performance in key areas as reading, writing, math and science. We will share resource materials that we made available at no cost to schools to support forestry/natural resources education. Finally, we will share some of the plans developed by Oregon school districts who participated in the conference that will demonstrate how together we are creating pathways to student success.
