As part of this program, students will investigate their local forest health by collecting, analyzing, and sharing data on forest and fire ecology, and teachers will receive professional development programming that supports them in leading these investigations in or near their own schools, and aligning this work with science curriculum standards. The Coordinator will be based in the NCSOS office, however they will also regularly visit classrooms, field sites, and the Sierra Streams Institute to assist with the implementation of the program.
