Focus on Students

Our students are actively engaged in the fire management in support of the greater natural resource community. You too can get involved in a variety of organizations that support outreach, hands-on educational experiences and networking opportunities.

In-the-Field Training
Field experiences include developing proposals for prescribed burns, fuel treatments, such as forest thinning recommendations to reduce fire potential in wildland urban interfaces, creating inventory procedures to capture fuel characteristics and assessing the effectiveness of fuel treatment plans. In 2010, one of our fuels inventory and management classes learned to develop a fuels inventory protocol that was implemented as part of a fuels management project for Ponderosa State Park, the Harold Nokes Experimental Forest and the McCall Field Campus.
