Bounty in the Forest:
Basswood, oak and hickory
Basswood, oak and hiskory trees grow all around you. Mound builders used the flexible wood of basswood trees for building material and they stored acorns from oak trees and hickory nuts for use as food in winter. See if you can identify these important woodland trees as you walk along.
