The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at
Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

 

Integrate GLOBE Trees into your programming by exploring the role of trees through a fun game of tag or using various tools and methods to measure tree height. Trees cool and moisten our air and fill it with oxygen and can help balance our carbon budget. Forests are considered one of the world’s largest banks for all of the carbon emitted into the atmosphere through natural processes and human activities. Gain experiential awareness of different kinds of land cover and how those change across the surface of the land.
