The Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign has found a way for campaign-participating schools, to leverage their tree height and tree-related activities to earnsome more awesome recognition. If participating campaign members are collecting tree height data or using tree-related measurements and observations from GLOBE for student-driven research projects and citizen science efforts, member schools are already well on the way to earning Tree Campus K-12 recognition for the currentschool year.
Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, the Arbor Day Foundation has a brand new program for K-12 schools called, “Tree Campus K-12.” According to the Tree Campus K-12 website:
“Tree Campus K-12 inspires collaboration between schools, students, and communities to facilitate experiences with trees as a learning tool. The program encourages schools and educators to create purposeful opportunities for students to interact with trees by offering resources as well as a framework for becoming recognized and celebrating their efforts with their community.”
