Talk About Trees Facilitators

Talk About Trees is a non-profit program dedicated to educating children about the responsible management and use of California's most renewable resource. We have qualified facilitators throughout the state who are available to visit elementary school classrooms free of charge. Their one-hour presentations have been described as "the premier fieldtrip in the classroom". All presentations follow statewide science curriculum guidelines and are designed to encourage awareness and appreciation for the value of trees and forests in the daily lives of people, and provide a better understanding of the methods utilized to conserve, manage, and protect forest resources. Feel free to contact the facilitator in your area to schedule a presentation. If there is no one listed for your area, please call our office at 1-866-241-TREE so we can locate one for you!

Talk About Trees classroom presentations align with 3rd – 6th Grade Science Standards -Download here (.pdf)
