Photos: Log-A-Load for Kids Charitable Harvest event at Arlington ARS

Last week, Arlington ARS hosted a Log-A-Load for Kids Charitable Harvest event that brought around 430 local elementary and middle school students to the station to learn about sustainable forestry. During the event, students rotated through 16 interactive learning stations.

Below are a few of the photos taken during the event by CALS photographer Sevie Kenyon.

It certainly took a big, collaborative effort to pull it off. Arlington ARS assistant superintendent Jeff Breuer and forest and wildlife ecology professor Scott Bowe spearheaded the effort, with key support from the Great Lakes Timber Professionals Association (GLTPA). The learning stations were manned by staff from the DNR, GLTPA, Oshkosh’s Koerner Forest Products and CALS, including Jamie Nack (wildlife biology station), (student) Logan Wells (forest soils station) and Dwight Mueller (agronomy station). Koerner Forest Products provided the harvesting, skidding and trucking services for the event.

Jamie Nack, a senior outreach specialist in the UW-Madison Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology, taught children about wildlife biology, including sharing this display of Wisconsin rodents.
