March/April 2014 - Spring is now here and, with that, major updates to the Forestry Challenge website. An "Events" page has been created for the new San Bernardino Forestry Challenge. Additionally, all links to the forms on the Events pages are up to date, ready for 2014. I encourage all of you visiting this website to use the links on the left to preregister, volunteer, or apply for a staff position. Having this information now, especially pre-registration information from the schools, makes the planning process much easier.
This year so far has been a whirlwind of meetings, conferences, and events. The Forestry Challenge program continues to add new sponsors and volunteers, and I am working on ways to contact new schools, particularly schools in the South end of the state, which can now get to an event without traveling too far.
I am putting the finishing touches on the 2013 Annual Report, and will have it available on the website soon. Past sponsors can look for a printed copy to arrive in the mail, along with a request for their financial support for this year. In addition to the direct event sponsors, I am compiling a list of companies by geographical region that may be available to help schools defray their registration fees.
I will continue to update the Events pages as I narrow down and identify the Focus Topics for each event.
Until next month,
Welcome to the California Forestry Challenge website. Information on the 2014 events is now posted on the "Events" pages. New this year is the San Bernardino Forestry Challenge, now making the trip to a Forestry Challenge event convenient from anywhere in the state.
If you are unable to open any of these forms, please notify us and we will send you a blank form.
The California Forestry Challenge is a competitive event for high school students in technical forestry and current forestry issues. Using the forest as the classroom, the California Forestry Challenge is project-based learning at its best.
