Can My Tree Catch the Flu?

This series of [4] activities helps increase youth awareness of Sudden Oak Death (SOD), a tree disease that has had devastating effects on oak populations in California. To provide an analogy to how a tree catches this disease, participants are introduced to a familiar situation – catching the flu. All activities were initially developed for a middle-school level audience but may easily be adapted to other ages and levels. The activities are interactive and engaging for the learner.
