SLV High School Students Participate in 2017 Santa Cruz Forestry Challenge
Eleven SLVHS students participated recently in the 2017 Santa Cruz Forestry Challenge. The challenge consisted of 107 high school students from fourteen schools from the Santa Cruz and Central California region. The event was held November 15 to 18 at Redwood Christian Park, near Boulder Creek, California.
One of the highlights for the students this year was the opportunity to visit a redwood forest that will soon be harvested using single tree selection. Students collected data on how much the trees have grown since the last selective harvest twelve years ago, and used the data to recommend the volume that can be sustainably removed in the upcoming harvest. During the Challenge, teams of students also completed field training, followed by a field test to assess their technical forestry knowledge.
