Each year, 4-H youth from across the state convene near Gainesville, Florida, to test their knowledge of Florida’s forests. Six contest stations enable youth to test their identification skills, compass skills, and knowledge of forest ecosystems. Youth will be asked to identify tree and plant leaves and fruits, insect and disease damage from samples, and wildlife on a forest walk; follow a compass course, and answer multiple choice questions on ecology and topography maps. Seniors will also be tested on tree measurement and perform in a quiz bowl.
How much? $5 for Participants, Observers are free!
