The Lake Superior Chapter of the Minnesota Society of American Foresters hosted the 31st Annual 5th Grade Forestry Field Day.

Duluth fifth graders took a field trip to one of four city parks in Duluth, to get a hands-on learning experience in a variety of subjects.

These included tree identification, tree growth, wildlife management, forest soils, wild land fire, and more.

“Not all kids can pay attention to a teacher talking to them,” said Kellie Mulliner, a fifth grade teacher at Laura Macarthur Elementary School.

“So when they get outside and are actually able to experience the science, they are able to have a better understanding,” she said.

The event was held in Hartley, Lester, and Chester Parks along with the Spirit Mountain Recreation Area.
