Working with Cub Scouts on Forestry

This past Sunday the Penn State Mont Alto Forestry club worked with a Webelos Cub Scout pack on their Forester activity. Meeting at the pavilion at Mont Alto State Park we discussed the importance of forests for conservation. Then we had a tree walk to identify six tree species and other plants, including pines, oaks, and sassafras. We certainly had a chance to identify poison ivy! The park is full of it.

It was a great day to enjoy the outdoors and our beautiful state parks. I think the seven Cub Scouts and their parents had a great time. Thanks to Tosh Rung for sharing his tree knowledge.
