Presentation Transcript

“Alder Creek Children’s Forest (ACCF), a charitable nonprofit organization, serves two of Oregon’s greatest treasures: our youth and our natural resources.  We offer a place, partnerships, and programs designed for young citizens to learn to work together to create healthy, sustainable forests, watersheds, and communities.”~ACCF

a little of what they do
A little of what they do…
  • “Our educational programs apply active-learning, standards-based curricula such as Project Learning Tree to real-world exploration, measurement, and management of our forest and watershed. Programs range from quick field trips to extended service opportunities.
  • Young citizens are our primary audience, especially those from south Douglas County.  What we offer prepares youth to meet school requirements while playing an informed role as public citizens in natural resource decisions now and in future.
  • We stress learning to work together, emphasizing civil communications among our youth and partners, and creating collaborative solutions to natural resource issues.”~ACCF
for the teachers
For the Teachers…

“We offer:

A 78-acre forest site in southern Douglas County providing field opportunities for inquiry-based learning, supported by classroom and online activities.

Twice-annual training in outdoor education curricula (Project Learning Tree and Project WILD) in conjunction with the Oregon Natural Resource Education Program.

Here are some ACCF activities your students can do right now online:

A virtual tour of the ACCF site, complete with 360 degree panoramic views and a treasure-hunt format to encourage learning about forests and forestry

A simple forest quiz, consisting of puzzle pictures we and your students have taken on the ACCF site and Alder-Jordan Creek watershed

One major initiative we are currently developing is Oregon Explorers, a field, classroom, and computer-based opportunity for youth to learn about Oregon’s natural resources and watersheds and contribute to their sustainable use. We are piloting Oregon Explorers at ACCF over the next few years, and invite you to join us! Please visit our Oregon Explorers Moodle page, part of the Oregon Virtual School District.”~ACCF

Get out and take a hike!
  • “If you'd like to tour ACCF, you first need to make an appointment.
  • Or perhaps you want to get involved with ACCF, maybe contribute your time or money? We are building a strong and diverse support network via Friends of ACCF and the ongoing kindness of those who commit to working together to make their children's future, and the future of their forests, watersheds, and natural resources, a healthy and sustainable one.”~ACCF

It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.  ~Robert Louis Stevenson
