USFS Promotes On-Line Resources During Distance Learning

With so many students, regardless of age, doing classwork on-line, content is becoming more important for school districts and colleges a like.
The U.S. Forest Service is reminding everyone of all of the education materials they make available. The Forest Service’s Heidi McAllister said traditional content such as Smokey Bear and Wildfire Prevention and Woodsy Owl and Conservation is mixed with newer programs such as ‘Natural Inquirer.’ 

“This is information mostly from our scientists and our Natural Inquirer staff takes those articles and turns them in to journal articles that are appropriate for school aged children,” she noted.

Free materials, including journals, articles and much more are available on-line.

“One booklet of activities that schools or parents or families can do when they’re out camping or out at a park or in one of our national forests.”

McAllister noted that materials are also available in Spanish. Click Here to see the resources that are available.
