About the Program
This program will start in a classroom and will discuss the importance of wildfire, global climate change, what happens to a forest after a wildfire, firefighting techniques, a reading from the Legends of the Forest children's book series "Cedric the Cedar", learning how to live in a "fire smart" home, urban interfacing, and the components of fire.

If a half day is chosen, then students will go outdoors and students will take what they've learned in the classroom and apply it to building a "fire smart" home using small birdhouses. They take natural or man-made materials and build a perfect homestead for themselves. As a group discussion, we will then visit each home to see if they have built a "fire smart" home. If it is a full day booked, students will then make a relevant nature craft.
