FireWorks Educator Workshop 2019

The FireWorks Educational Program is a valuable resource for teachers, fire prevention specialists, fire information officers, agency educators, communication specialists, and outdoor educators. Participants can earn credit from University of Montana or 16 Montana educator renewal credits, if desired.
The free workshop consists of two intense days of entertaining hands-on activities for teaching students about wildland fire behavior, ecology, management and activities related to traditional fire use by Native Americans. Content focuses on ecosystems in the Northern Rocky Mountains and North Cascade range, but the program has been adapted for use in other ecosystems, including the Sierra Nevada and the Sage Steppe. The curriculum, revised to include new materials that reflect recent advances in fire research, has activities for every age group K-12, and adult education as well.
The FireWorks program has a new website where you can access the most recent FireWorks curricula, print handouts and teaching aids, find information about how to set up the supplies included in our teaching “trunks” and learn about upcoming events.
