In a competition of age we ask, who’s the oldest tree in nature? The Giant Sequoias take the gold medal in this race, some living 4,000-5,000 years! They also hold the Gold in terms of mass – They can grow 30 stories tall, 82.3 feet in circumference, and 2,756 tons!
When looking for other trophy worthy trees, we can actually look right around us at any average-sized tree and see a creature that can produce 170,000 pencils. That’s record-breaking pencil making. And when looking at that same average-sized tree in our own neighborhoods, we are also looking at a living thing that produces enough oxygen for a family of four to breathe for one entire year. Thank you, record-breaking trees!
We could go on and on about record-breaking nature, and we are excited to share all that we can with you. Come join us for a special activity station based entirely around exploring some fun Olympic nature facts. The activity station will be on the grounds at the Chattahoochee Nature Center for the entire month of August. We hope to see you there, perhaps even breaking some records of your own!
