Florida 4-H Forest Ecology

The Florida 4-H Forest Ecology Contest is held every year at the Austin Cary Forest’s Roland T. Stern Learning Center in Gainesville, Florida. This is a competitive event that encourages youth to identify forest trees, plants, wildlife, and forest health stresses, and to demonstrate their knowledge of forest ecology and management, map and compass, tree measurement, forest management, and natural history. Youth at all three 4-H age levels can compete individually or in teams.

The next Forest Ecology Clinic will take place Saturday, September 28, 2024, and the 2025 Contest will take place Saturday, March 29, 2025.
