This project developed a childrens book titled "Marcie the Marvelous Tree: An Autobiography".

TREE MUSKETEERS published Marcie the Marvelous Tree: An Autobiography in English and Spanish. The 32 page hardcover book is intended to be read by lst - 3rd  graders and as a picture book by younger children, though it is enjoyed by all ages. While it is somewhat unusual for a tree to write its life story, you will quickly learn from the book that Marcie is no ordinary sycamore. The colorful illustrations awaken a new awareness in young readers of trees while informing about urban forestry and inspiring youth to take action in their communities. A glossary explains key environmental and urban forestry terms. The second part of this project produced How-To Kits packed with leadership and urban forestry information for national youth groups. Each Kit is outfitted with a customized grid to demonstrate how members can satisfy badge requirements and advance in their group in the course of conducting urban forestry projects. The goal is to help busy leaders incorporate urban forestry into the group activities for large numbers of youth nationwide.
