Users walk through a fictional Virginia forest, and use scientific tools and methodologies to determine the forest makeup, monitor its health, and conserve its biodiversity. Each walk opens with an animated entrance into the forest in a different season. Guide characters from Smithsonian’s National Zoo assist the user and encourage inquiry.
