Fourth-Graders Learn about Forest Products (Including Ice Cream)

SACRAMENTO -- A fourth grade class got from Florin Elementary toured the California Forest Center at Cal Expo Tuesday morning for National Forest Products Week.

Along with learning about trees and sustainable forest habits they also were made aware that many of their favorite things have wood product in them.

They were caught off-guard about one item in particular -- ice cream.

They make think twice the next time they indulge, but it probably won't stop them because ice cream is awesome.
