Trees of the Smithsonian

Last updated over 4 years ago

Trees of the Smithsonian was developed to show you how to use the resources around your school, community, and within the Smithsonian Gardens. The purpose is to provide good examples and stories that could be used in your own community environment to teach a variety of subjects and engage students and youth with new objects of learning. The Smithsonian Gardens’ tree collection is the base for the activities, but trees in your neighborhood, community park, local public garden, or arboretum can be incorporated into the plans.
