The accompanying activities are designed to use the history, stories, photographs, and conservation efforts resulting in the 1911 Weeks Act as a catalyst for exploration, investigation, and discussion of the importance of forested and natural areas. Students will explore the history of the conservation and progressive movement and the connections among its messages and actions and their own community and personal feelings about the environment and nature. They will look at the debates and arguments among the forest advocates and industry, and the role that sustainable forestry plays.

The activity and related questions are designed to meet a range of ages and abilities. It may be modified and changed to meet the needs of educators in their classroom and community.
