Forest Recreation

Here's a look at the many activities enjoyed by the HCC Forest Management students during their three week course in forest recreation (yes, it really is a class!).

Aside from hiking and generally just enjoying the outdoors, the students learned the history of forest recreation in America; Discussion topics included the history of National Park creation, important figures in history that pushed for the protection of wilderness like John Muir and Aldo Leopold, and which government components control and manage the different aspects of recreation. Enjoy the pictures!
