Big Tree New Measuring Guidelines
Tuesday, 09/06/2016 (09:15 AM - 04:30 AM)

People like big trees, and big tree competitions have been alive and well in America since the 1920s and a mainstay program of American Forests since 1940. However, accurately measuring large irregularly shaped trees has never been easy. There is surprising room for significant error even in basic measurements like trunk circumference. In 2013, American Forests accepted the challenge to upgrade measurement methods and establish an expert national tree-measuring force called the National Cadre. Since then an 86-page measuring guide has been produced and new techniques continue to be developed. This workshop is meant to present some history of tree measuring, the primary techniques used by the cadre, and a discussion of where errors are made and how to analyze and minimize them. The morning will be inside and a number of methods will be demonstrated in an afternoon field session. Come prepared for the field. Participants are invited to bring any height-measuring instruments, such as laser rangefinders and clinometers to the afternoon field session. (Bringing equipment is optional).

Building a Foundation for the Future: Promoting Social Emotional Competency in Infants and Toddlers
Monday, 09/12/2016 (06:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

Promoting Social Emotional Learning in Early Childhood
Building a Foundation for the Future:
Promoting Social Emotional Competency in Infants and Toddlers

Social competency can seem mysterious. Some infants and toddlers seem to connect easily with everybody and others seem to struggle to fit in. Social and emotional competence involves a child’s ability to regulate and express emotions and form close and secure relationships. It involves skills such as self-confidence, curiosity, motivation, persistence, and self-control. Infant/Toddler professionals have an important role in promoting the social emotional learning.

Grounded in the research-based “Pyramid Model” developed at the Center on the Social Emotional Foundation of Early Learning (CSEFEL), this series will utilize material from the CSEFEL Infant/Toddler training modules to  provide a thorough framework of strategies to support emerging social emotional competence in very young children.

 

 

September 12: Module 1 - Understanding Social Emotional Development

This module will focus on developing a “deep dive” thorough understanding of social emotional competency, how it develops and the infant/toddler 
professional’s role in promoting social emotional learning.

September 26: Module 2 - Forming and Sustaining Relationships with Young Children and Families

This module will focus on how relationships with infants and toddlers and their families are crucial in creating a positive social/emotional climate in your program. Through the lens of attachment, strategies for forming and sustaining relationships with children and families while navigating the day to day challenges of working in an infant/toddler setting will be presented. This will include strategies for supporting parents in forming positive secure relationships.

October 10: Module 3 - Creating High Quality Supportive Environments for Promoting Social Emotional Learning

This module will focus on how the physical environment, schedules and routines support the social/emotional development of infants and toddlers. Strategies for providing individualized responsive care and education will be presented.

October 24: Module 4 - Using Targeted strategies to build social emotional skills

This module will focus on emotional literacy, the ability to identify, understand and express emotions in a healthy way, as well as the ability to recognize emotions in others. Strategies for promoting age appropriate social and emotional skills will be presented.

November 5: Module 5 + 6 - A Relationship based approach to challenging behavior

This module will focus on understanding and responding to challenging behavior. Strategies for understanding the meaning behind challenging behaviors and strategies for helping toddlers learn the skills to begin to understand and regulate their emotions and behaviors will be an emphasis. Strategies for helping parents and caregivers respond to challenging behaviors will also be explored.

Dates & Times

Module One 9/12, 6:00-9:00

The 26th Annual Tree Farm and Fun Family, Kid-Friendly Field Day
Saturday, 09/17/2016 (08:00 AM - 04:00 PM)

About the Field Day
To celebrate the Boy Scouts being named Outstanding Tree Farm, we will focus on engaging youths in the outdoors through fun family, kid-friendly activities—and the traditional Tree Farm tour. Join us as the Daniel Webster Council Boy Scouts of America and their forester, Ron Klemarczyk, share their timber management, roads, trails and recreational forest management. The Griswold Scout Reservation Tree Farm encompasses 3,100 acres in the Lakes Region and includes seven mountain summits, four lakes, and numerous recreational trails. This camp introduces over 4,500 scouts to outdoor experiences every summer. The public is also welcome to explore their extensive trail system throughout the Belknap Mountain Range. A conservation easement ensures this property remains undeveloped and identifies specific zones for camping and forestry.

Telling Your Story with Maps
Wednesday, 09/21/2016 (01:00 AM - 04:00 PM)

Have an interesting historical downtown that you want people to visit? Looking to engage people of a community to explore their town and provide their thoughts? Hoping to have your audience prepare for meeting by looking at maps/pictures/videos? Driven by Esri's ArcGIS Online, Story Maps are a great way to share your information and tell your story to a wide variety of stakeholders (no coding experience necessary!)

Activities focus on getting up and running with Story Maps, including how to create and configure the map to best communicate with your audience. We will also use a mobile app, Snap2Map, to build Story Maps in the field with a mobile device.
