The stories recorded by tree rings connect natural history and human history to provide rich, place-based education for students of all ages. Trees living in the arid ecosystems of the Southwest are particularly sensitive to changes in moisture levels which become reflected in the pattern of growth rings. By understanding the history lessons within trees, researchers learn about two of the most critical natural resource issues facing the Southwest; water supplies and wildfire. 

A Firewise Curriculum to Spark Learning was developed by Dr. Judy Reinhartz, Professor Emeritus of Science Education, The University of Texas at El Paso and board member of Wildfire Network, that integrates fire adapted principles with the Common Core and the new science standards, NGSS.

Our Mission

Wildfire Network works in pursuit of community wildfire resiliency by working with young adults and communities to promote firefighter safety, job development and youth mentorship. Through wildland and prescribed fire training, we employ and mentor at-risk youth in forest health, wildfire mitigation and safe firefighting techniques. We educate K-12 youth about natural fire processes within their environment and provide aid to communities with wildfire risk reduction and property stewardship.

Wildfire Network believes the cornerstone of community wildfire resiliency is education in adaptive management techniques on and around private property.
