OHS PARTICIPATED IN THE 2022 SAN BERNARDINO FORESTRY CHALLENGE
Green Valley Lake, CA — Nine students from Oceanside High School participated recently in the 2022 San Bernardino Forestry Challenge, one group of a total of 49 high school students from 6 schools from the Southern California region. The event was November 16 to 19 at Hume SoCal in Green Valley Lake, California. One of the highlights for the students this year was the opportunity to assist with preparation of a Forest Management Plan for Hume SoCal. Students defined management objectives, assessed the forest, prioritized threats, and evaluated potential treatments to meet the management objectives. During the Challenge, teams of students also completed a field test to assess their technical forestry knowledge and data collecting skills. “Forestry Challenge allowed our students to collect and analyze data to propose a solution to a real problem in front of an authentic audience. All of this while bonding with classmates and exploring careers in forestry and natural resource management.” said Oceanside High School teacher Juan Hernandez. Ambrielle Anton, a sophomore at Oceanside High School, summed it up as follows: “This was a really unique experience and helped expand my knowledge of careers in forestry and allowed me to develop my skills in data collection and presenting.”
