Tom Tomlinson, Managing Director-South Central Region for The Molpus Woodlands Group, LLC (“Molpus”), and Jon Duncan, Division Forester, recently participated in activities at “Earth Day at Black Bayou Lake,” held at the Black Bayou National Wildlife Refuge in Monroe, Louisiana, on April 25, 2015. This event was an opportunity for children of all ages to learn more about nature through guided walks around the refuge–including identifying birds by their songs–and through hands-on science lessons presented by students at the University of Louisiana at Monroe.

Tomlinson and Duncan also talked to the children and their parents about trees. Children learned the differences between softwood trees (such as pines) and hardwood trees (such as oak) that are local to the area and examined pine cones, acorns, and sweet gum balls, learning which came from which trees.

“Molpus is committed to educating our future generations about the importance of our forest resources and would like to thank the Black Bayou National Wildlife Refuge for this opportunity,” stated Tomlinson. Molpus provided each child with “tree cookies” and coloring books as souvenirs.
