One thought to “A Walk in the Woods”

  1. I thought this video was great. My family has camped at Bear Brook State Park Campground for the past 39 years, so that was the first thing that attracted me to this video, but we have also walked the same trail you walked (but in the opposite direction and back). I also learned a few things about trees. But more importantly, I will pass the link on to my son to have my grandson watch this video. He is young, loves camping, and loves learning new things. He is currently very interested in growing things (he and his mother recently planted a carrot top, onion, garlic clove and some other items which are now sprouting) and loves to walk in the woods with his parents. I think this video will be perfect for him right now. Thank you for making learning about trees fun.
