Sustainable Forestry is an outside CFI class taught by Mr. Vylet. During this class, the upper form students hike through the woods and help tend to the natural surroundings of the SKS campus.

“The goal of this class is to get students outdoors and into the forests hoping that they learn something about the habitats and the environment,” Mr. Vylet said.

The students have multiple cameras set up around the woods to try and capture pictures of animals that cross its path.

The students also chop wood, as well as making sure there are no big obstacles covering the tracks. This class informs students about forest life both here at South Kent School and in the forests of the real world.
