4-H Forestry Field Day results

By: Tony Rose, Agent for 4-H Youth Development
Adair County Extension Service

4-H youth from Adair and Metcalfe counties attended the 4-H Forestry Field Day at Green River Lake on Thursday, September 15, 2022.

The more than 85 youth had the opportunity to learn about Kentucky's trees and forests as well as some of the skills that real-life foresters utilize everyday while on the job. The youth aged 9 to 13 (Juniors) and 14 to 18 (Seniors) years of age were taught and tested on the basics of tree identification, tree measurement and the use of a compass and measuring distances by pacing.

The instructors for the Forestry Event were foresters from the University of Kentucky Department of Forestry and Natural Resource and the Kentucky Division of Forestry.
