April 2015 - Here we go again! With 2014 in the books, a new year of Forestry Challenge awaits. Teachers and volunteers, I cannot tell you how important it is to have your input now. The fall is such a rush that the more I know now, the better prepared I can be. Please complete and return either the pre-registration form or the volunteer form, linked on the left side of this page.
Many aspects of the 2015 events will remain the same as last year: There will be 5 events in the same areas, the dates are similar, and teachers who pre-register before May 31 will receive a 50% discount on registration fees. Here's what has changed: Due to scheduling conflicts with the 2014 event site, the San Bernardino Forestry Challenge has moved to Calvary Chapel Christian Camp in Green Valley Lake. Second, the scholarship has been modified to make many more students eligible to receive a $3,000 cash award. Lastly, returning teachers who recruit one or more new schools will receive a free registration for each new school.
So "don't delay, act now"! Go to the links on the event pages and send me your completed forms. I'll be finalizing focus topics in May and June, but what I have so planned far is going to be great!
Until Next Month,
Welcome to the California Forestry Challenge website. Information on the 2015 events is posted on the "events" pages. Schools that pre-register for 2015 events before May 31st will get a 50 percent discount on registration fees.
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.
