EAGLE RIVER - Trees For Tomorrow in Eagle River wants to teach kids about science through hands-on learning. Its Science and Earth Exploration for Kids Adventure Series, or S.E.E.K. program offers just that.
About 15 kids ages eight through 12 go to S.E.E.K. each week. The camp has a new theme each day. Thursday's theme was animal CSI. Kids learned about animal adaptation and how to track animals.
"How can mammals actually blend into the woods as well as they can? Why can't we? And so it's all about answering those questions along the way, but in a way that's an experience to make sure it sticks in their minds," said Trees For Tomorrow School Program Coordinator Mary Beth Factor.
