Welcome to OneTree Alaska!
OneTree Alaska is an education, research, and community outreach project of the University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences. Now in its second year, OneTree is growing, thanks to collaborations among area schools, the university, and community artists and artisans. As a curriculum-building project, OneTree utilizes the Alaska boreal forest as the basis for active learning and inquiry investigations into science, social studies and the arts.
