Corey George, the forester at Shorewood Hills (and our boss) really knows his stuff, and he's always happy to share it with us. I personally I have learned a lot about invasive, native, and endangered species in our local Wisconsin ecosystem, as well as techniques for removing and planting plants in gardens and in more natural environments. Other cool things happen now and then, too, like once we got to help prepare for (and witness) a controlled burn and learn about how it can be beneficial for local plant life."
