November 2014 - There's nothing good about an out-of-date website. If I'm surfing and I see a website with the last update in 2010, it makes an impression on me. That said, I know I've been neglectful with my monthly update, and I realize that's not good at all.
So, with November almost half gone, I'm fixing that. With four events behind us, and the last one next week, it's been a great run this fall. We are still headed for the 300 mark for student participation (a 50% increase over last year), and it has been a pleasure to spend time with all of you. The weather has been perfect, and the volunteers have represented the forestry profession well.
But, before resting and reflecting on the accomplishments of 2014, I have the privilege of making new friends and catching up with a few past participants at the San Bernardino Forestry Challenge next week. I wondered, at the end of last year, if doing 5 events was a good idea. By next time this week, I'll know for sure, but I feel confident that the answer is a resounding YES!
Until next month,
Welcome to the California Forestry Challenge website. Information on the 2014 events is now posted on the "Events" pages. New this year is the San Bernardino Forestry Challenge, now making the trip to a Forestry Challenge event convenient from anywhere in the state.

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.
