The FireWorks educational program is a valuable resource for teachers (16 OPI credits or 1 University of Montana credit available), fire prevention specialists, fire information officers, agency educators, communication specialists, and outdoor educators.
The 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 is being 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 and educational standards, has activities for every age group K-12, and adult education as well.
