Our students, curators, and collaborators are sharing outdoors activities with emphasis on specific learning topics. The topics are related to higher education courses also being taught this term.

Our first topic is the Environmental Management. The focus is sustainability, climate, food, lands, reducing human impact, etc. Other topics will be open based on current interest and news.

This is a report of our visit to the Center of Environmental Studies of Comunitat Valenciana in Spain.

Extreme Recycling in Japan | World Scout Jamboree | Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche | #RecyclingBins

Scouts learned during 2015 World Scout Jamboree how Japan handle their recyclables. Troop had to divide trash into eight different parts (combustible, non combustible, hard plastic, soft plastic, aluminum, other metals, hard cartons, and paper). They later divided again into sixteen parts to be separately carried out of the Jamboree site.

During our tours to villages, cities, and parks, we were able to see different kind of recycling bins.

California Statewide Fire Map | Cal Fire

This map provides general locations of major fires burning in California. The fire locations are approximates. Some of the fires on the map are not in the jurisdiction of CAL FIRE and are under the command of another local or federal fire agency.

While Californians are learning more and more about the good as well as the bad of fire, the prevention of large, damaging fires remains a priority for CAL FIRE. From Smokey Bear, to the thousands of CAL FIRE Volunteers in Prevention (VIPs), to new alliances with communities, private industry, and government agencies, aggressive action in fire prevention and fire safety is occurring throughout the State.

Safety First. Be Prepared to Change Long Trails’ Plans | Melissa & Mark Thompson | #PlanB

#PlanB #BePreparedToChange #LongTrails #WeatherReports ==> “After about half of mile of trudging through more than half a foot of snow that dropped last night, we realized that finding trail was already difficult, and yet another 5 to 8 inches of snow is expected today and tonight. This realization (coupled with a little common sense) brought us to the decision to hike this trail another day in the future. We’re now headed into town for a hot cocoa and in search some fried chicken.”
