Fire and Our Forests


Fire is a hot topic both worldwide and locally in Wisconsin. Did you know that the Wisconsin DNR responded to more than 700 wildland fire calls last year!? As people continue to move into forested areas, the potential for loss of property and lives increases. Yet, fire plays an important natural role in many forest ecosystems.

Join LEAF for a Wildland Fire Education workshop where K-12 educators will explore the history, socio-cultural issues, management, and current status of wildland fire in Wisconsin and beyond. Participants will receive the LEAF Wisconsin K-12 Wildland Fire Lesson Guide, Project Learning Tree’s Environmental Education Activity Guide, and other useful classroom resources. Activities will also include a tour of Treehaven’s fire ecology research plots.
