Mapping Our Forest

Sara Rose Tannenbaum, a masters student at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, recently paid us a visit to share her knowledge and interest in map-making with children. In contrast to the printed property map, the kids' used their own spacial understanding of the woods at EWL and their steps, or strides, as a system of measurement to begin charting their sylvan world, Zombie Volcano and Snack Rock included.
