A strong youth education program is vital to encouraging participation in the FireSmart program and building community ownership. In 2012, the Lesser Slave Forest Education Society and the Lesser Slave Lake Bird Observatory were commissioned by the Slave Lake Region Tri-council to develop new FireSmart educational programming for youth. These programs can be found in the links below and are downloadable and free to use. In addition, courses and information for the community leaders, homeowners, and contractors that work or live in the forest are also provided.
The following resources are free for use in your classroom, or you can contact us for a free presentation.
