Click on “Forestry” in the top toolbar. These case studies offer a student-centred approach to learning that asks students to identify, explore, and provide solutions to real-world problems by focusing on case-specific examples. This approach simulates real-life practice in sustainability education in that it illuminates the ongoing complexity of the problems being addressed.

A guidebook for identifying shrubs and trees in the winter. In most guidebooks, leaves are usually the preferred characteristic for identification, as they are plentiful and highly visible. In winter there are still many other traits we can observe, we just need to take the time to look for them and practice developing our “eye” for detail.
