THE LORAX PARTNERSHIP
Discover the Forest:
Have you discovered our new Lorax Curriculum? Developed by the U.S. Forest Service, Project Learning Tree (PLT), Dr. Seuss' The Lorax and the Ad Council, it’s designed to help students connect with nature and discover the benefits of forests. Hands-on activities allow children to learn about our ecosystems, sustainable living, management of natural resources and more!

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS
Through the Discover the Forest campaign, the U.S. Forest Service has partnered with the Ad Council and Universal Pictures to launch a series of public service advertisements (PSAs) and educational materials featuring characters from the animated adventure Dr Seuss’ The Lorax. The PSAs and the educational materials aim to encourage parents, caregivers and their kids to go out to the forest to experience and reconnect with nature. These PSAs encourage families to get out to the forest to experience its benefits first-hand.

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
