Waterfall Fire Interpretive Trail

K-12 Outreach

Supported by the Nevada NSF-EPSCoR Climate Change grant during the summer of 2011. These video shorts with voice over in English and Spanish are intended for use in the K-12 and college classroom by teachers and students. The objective is to show students curious about their surroundings interested in measuring the effects of climate change on landscapes particularly disturbance regimes and post-fire recovery. The Waterfall Fire Interpretive Trail was the site of the filming, on the campus of Western Nevada College in Carson City, Nevada USA.
