This special topic workshop is being offered as part of FLAME Week events curated by Turnbull Creek ESF and partners. “F.L.A.M.E.” stands for Fire Learning and Mitigation Education, and events are open to anyone interested in prescribed and wildland fire.

Using Project Learning Tree's activity bundle Nature of Fire and other resources, participants will assess successional stages following a disturbance in ecosystems, examine how fire is being used to restore historical ecosystems, investigate the fire triangle and fire movement, explore carbon outputs from wildland fires and how these relationships affect climate, and observe the effects of fire at the workshop site.  The Nature of Fire activity bundle is geared towards grades 6-8, however, many of the activities and resources shared during the workshop can easily be adapted for learners of all levels.  This workshop is for formal and nonformal educators that want to learn and include more discussion and modeling about fire in their lessons or programs. Note: this workshop is not distributing the PLT K-8 flagship guide, Explore Your Environment. 

CEU renewal credits are available (1.0). This workshop qualifies 10 contact hours in Criteria I or II for the NC EE Certification Program. 

If the cost of this workshop is a barrier for you, please reach out to the the NC PLT Coordinator, Renee Strnad, at renee_strnad@ncsu.edu.
