There are multiple resources for teachers or educators who want to bring some fire science ideas to the classroom, here’s one for the Sierra Nevada and one for Southern California.
This Story Map tells the story of the 2017 fires, with a specific emphasis on how natural habitats fared during and after the fires, and the important role of science and data in enhancing watershed and community resiliency, land management, and education.
This website discusses the work being done here and has an amazing set of photos, videos, and even a virtual reality immersive experience (under the media gallery tab).
Do you know what's in your water tank? You could be spreading invasive aquatic species during a fire activity. Here are some resources on how to prevent spreading these harmful ride-along species.
Our mission is to serve as a venue for practitioners, state and federal agencies, academic institutions, tribes, non-governmental organizations, coalitions, and interested individuals to work collaboratively to promote, protect, conserve, and expand the responsible use of prescribed fire and cultural fire in the southern Sierra Nevada’s fire-adapted landscapes and fire-dependent landscapes, and to promote public understanding and acceptance on the ecological and cultural importance of burning.

"The leading information and knowledge resource on fire, electrical and related hazards"
The California Forest Stewardship Program was created to encourage good stewardship of California's private forestland. The program provides technical information and assistance to landowners to promote sound forest management, and assists communities in solving forest-related issues.
At the La Kretz Center, we help preserve California’s biodiversity and ecosystems through research, education and public programs. We supply the scientific research needed to inform management actions to protect and restore California’s fragile biodiversity resources.
