  1.  2020-2021 Virtual Contest Materials Now Available

For those preparing teams for state contests next year, we have now linked all 2020-2021 virtual contest content that we have available to each contest web page on ilaged.org (here). We hope that these provide a valuable resource to you and your students to learn and prepare for these events in the future.

 

  1. Forestry Degree Resources Added to the Website

The 2021 fire season is upon us, and with several major fires already raging across the Western U.S., it looks like it's going to be one of the worst ones yet.

To help protect our forests from the continued fire threat in the coming years, more forestry professionals are needed, particularly in areas like fire ecology, forest management, and forest policy. STEPS (Student Training & Education in Public Service), is doing their part to encourage more people to join the forest protection field by sharing pages on our site showcasing rewarding careers in forestry and the degree paths to get there.
