CCS Our Forests
Postdoctoral Scholar: Youth Community Action and Science in Our Forests
The Center for Community and Citizen Science (CCCS) seeks an accomplished science education researcher to join a collaborative team working on a large-scale National Science Foundation DRK12-funded research and development project.
In early November 2019, KVMR’s Educationally Speaking program invited Sol Henson, the Educational Co-Director at Sierra Streams Institute, and our own Erin Bird to discuss the Youth Community Action and Science in Our Forests (“Our Forests”) project, now getting underway in Nevada County. The Our Forests project will train and support participating 3rd, 4th and 5th grade teachers as they work with their students, local environmental scientists and community organizations to study local forests and fire risk.
