Educational Needs Assessment Study for DNR Department of Forestry
A 2002 study was led by Chris Beimborn, CMSER staff member, on behalf of the Wisconsin DNR Division of Forestry. The purpose of the study was to examine the needs of the educational community for a proposed Forestry Awareness and Education Center on the Milwaukee County Grounds. Several collaborators from the education community as well as staff from many local field trip providers contributed to this report.
The research analyzed a wide range of topics, including building needs; statistics about the targeted audience; input from over 200 learning coordinators, science teachers, and district administrators; a directory of other Southeastern Wisconsin field trip providers and locales; and models from existing field trip providers.
The finished report is included below, titled Barking Up the Right Tree: An Educational Needs Assessment for the Forestry Education and Awareness Center. If you are interested in viewing a hard copy of the report or have specific questions regarding the study, contact the CMSER.
