Texas A&M Forest Service has partnered with the Keep America Beautiful program and their Youth Advisory Council to create high school lesson modules and a community guide for Tree Trails. The Youth Advisory Council is made up of 10 teens across the United States who are ambassadors and leaders for youth service in their respective communities.

The council aims to incorporate Tree Trails into their Community Greening and Beautification section of their projects.

Tree Trails provides a way for school and community groups to celebrate trees by creating an education trail. Groups identify, measure and map trees along their trail on the ground and online. They then investigate other forestry topics and plan a service learning project around those topics.

For more information about Tree Trails or to get involved with a group, visit the Learn and Explore Tab on the TFS webpage or contact Leslie Kessner at lkessner@tfs.tamu.edu. Look for the completed modules next summer.
