This video is about a simple hike through the woods that turns into a learning experience for three teenagers. When a forester from the Kentucky Division of Forestry joins their outing, the young hikers begin an exploration of the history of the forests of Kentucky, the natural and human influences that have shaped them, and what it will take to ensure their future survival. The online video includes three parts: history and geography - an overview of historic uses of forests and an introduction to forest habitats; life science and environmental science - forest ecology, the functions of healthy forests, and the importance of old-growth forest; and economics -wood and tree-derived products, timber management, and regulation of forests and logging. There is also a video about a visit to Blanton Forest and interview clips about the economic value of wildlife, wildlife and forest habitat, using all your senses to look for wildlife, and habitat loss in Kentucky.
