Fire prevention specialists, fire information officers, trainers, environmental educators, students and other community members—especially teachers—are invited to a free, two-day workshop on the science of wildland fire offered at the Missoula Fire Sciences Lab.
The “FireWorks” program, a curriculum and traveling trunk, offers approximately 40 hands-on activities about fire behavior, ecology, and management. Content focuses on ecosystems in the Northern Rocky Mountains and North Cascade range, but the program is being adapted for use in other locations, including the Great Plains, Plumas National Forest and the sagebrush steppe. The workshop will cover more than 30 of the activities and also teaches participants how to train others to use the program. Renewal credit (OPI) and University of Montana credit are available (pending approval).
