LEAF, Wisconsin’s K-12 Forestry Education Program, was created to help promote forestry education in Wisconsin in 2001. Since then, LEAF has provided professional development to thousands of Wisconsin’s teachers, provided curriculum to hundreds of thousands of Wisconsin students, and registered over 27,000 acres of school forest land. LEAF is a partnership between the Wisconsin DNR-Division of Forestry and the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point’s Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education.
