Friends of Trees Scare Elk

Posted in Blog

Our mighty and creative friends in level 2 at the Forest Grove Community School have come to the rescue once again. Though we have had problems for years with the winter elk herd chomping on the baby trees that we struggle to help live, this year has been the worst on record. Though we can’t blame them, a herd of about 50 elk have settled into the “Nedow” (formerly known as the Lower Field) and done serious damage to hundreds of seedlings. Building on our success over the past three years with “scare elk”, we’ve worked with students and staff to increase the number and realism. As the photos show, the 2 humans and 2 wolves have been joined by 3 beautiful humans and a pack of 5 lovely wolves. No elk in sight! Special thanks to the community schoolers!
