Using Big Gun Conservation Bank Site for Education

Here at WES we are always looking for opportunities to use our sites for educaiton.  This June our Big Gun Conservation Bank will be involved in an education program through a partnership of the Project Learning Tree (PLT) and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.  The PLT is a national program designed to provide educators with curriculum that can be used with other school programs to reach children and broaden their understanding of the environment around them. PLT uses creativity, investigation and experimentation to teach kids about the importance of such environmental issues as our trees, forests, wildlife, and fire ecology.  The cost of the program is a refundable deposit of $25 per session and lunch is provided.  It is open to the public as well as educators, but space is limited!  To register contact Kay Antunez, 916.653.7958 or kay.antunez@fire.ca.gov. View/download flyer for more information.
