Nature Studies are a favorite thing around here. We love getting outside and enjoying God’s creation. There is so much to learn and see. I have always wanted to do an in depth study on trees, more than just collecting pretty leaves, which is a  fun and simple way to get started. I have found tons of GREAT FREE resources on trees while doing my research.
