The Discover the Forest website is a partnership between the US Forest Service and the Ad Council. This exciting and dynamic website offers resources to help get kids out in the woods -- exploring nature in their own backyard. This website is especially designed for tweens -- kids in Grades 4th through 8th -- and features exciting, interactive activities and games; an online "nature finder"; and resources for parents and teachers.
