Forest to Frame
Trees are fabulous! They filter our water, supply us with oxygen, provide habitat for plants and animals, moderate Earth’s temperatures and store atmospheric carbon. We will visit some of San Francisco’s impressive trees in Golden Gate Park and will learn hands-on about photosynthesis and carbon capture using real scientific instruments. Trees provide infinitely renewable wood but cutting them down also takes away a valuable resource from the planet. Using sustainability principles, you will build a chair or a bench out of wood to bring a touch of the magnificent outdoors into your room.
Kids will use handsaws, hammers, drills, screwdrivers, files and other tools. Electric saw excluded.
