  • In August 2007 the Jocko Lakes fire burned over 37,000 acres near the town of Seeley Lake, Missoula County, Montana. One month after the fire the Lolo National Forest proposed timber harvest to salvage much of the burned timber. A key part of the environmental review process required a cultural resource inventory as well as Tribal consultation with the Confederated Salish and Kutenai Tribes. The Jocko Lakes fire created a unique opportunity for a productive cultural resource inventory due to the excellent ground visibility. The Jocko Lakes fire burned extremely hot and in many places consumed the vegetation and forest litter down to mineral soil. The unique survey conditions caused by the fire yielded a significant historic fur trade site, a prehistoric archeological site, numerous prehistoric isolated finds and intact segment of the historic Jocko Indian Trail.

  • Why struggle to make a friction fire when today we have matches and lighters? Why try to create an obsidian knife when steel blades are so easily bought? Is there any benefit to making a shelter from natural materials instead of using a lightweight tent? There is tremendous value in understanding traditional wilderness skills and having the competency needed to make do without modern gear. On the simplest level, a person who is not dependent on modern gear will be comfortable under any conditions. (You never know, after all, when you might be put into a situation without your equipment.) This workshop will introduce students on how to prepare for surviving in the “Wild.” Instruction will include the seven priorities of survival: positive mental attitude, wilderness first aid, shelter, fire craft, signaling, water, and food gathering. Learn how to build a personal survival kit, natural shelters, purify water, create friction fire, find wild food, and master a variety of wilderness crafts. Wilderness skills helped people survive in the outdoors and weather the aftermath of natural disasters. There will be various outdoor portions of the class, students need to dress accordingly.

  • Welcome to the Program Management workshop! We focus on motivating you to THINK PROGRAMMATICALLY. As individuals move into programmatic positions with additional program development responsibilities, they usually must change their attitude and behavior toward a programmatic/administrative role. This workshop sets the stage to think and behave in this manner, and offers the concepts, tools, and examples to do so. If you already think programmatically, you are ahead of the crowd. For 3.5 days you will focus on drafting a Program Plan. You can access edited draft plans – examples for you to use. At the end of the week we expect a more robust version of the general outline (not one of the final example plans). You will have in-class free time to work on your draft plan and collaborate with colleagues participating in the class and instructing. For details visit http://www.fs.fed.us/biology/education/workshops/pmb/index.html Bring writing tools (laptop with Cat5 cable; pen/pencil/paper; etc. – whatever works for you)

  • Human Performance Research, Development, & Application Unit has developed a Champion train to trainer program to help develop capacity for delivery of Comprehensive Wellbeing & Resiliency tools for the agency and support local Champion in each Region that will go through the training on how to deliver the program and share and have access to all the tools. The Comprehensive Wellbeing and Resilience Program is specifically designed to help support employees and leaders in a natural resources context: Focuses on your whole self: physical, mental, emotional, and purpose. Consists of a train-the- trainer program with stand-alone modules that can be used in a variety of ways as well as in-person delivery options. Guides you in determining your personal mission and story based on what is most important in your life. Equips you with tools and knowledge that empower you to weave strategic movement and healthy nutrition into your life—at work and at home. Addresses energy management and WHY “energy zappers” can impair your health and add to stress. Gives you a “resilience roadmap’” to help guide you on your journey to optimal health and wellbeing. Provides continued support to and welfare checks for 90 days after the workshop. Shares potential ways to increase work-life balance. Resources for the Journey ? The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) provides a holistic understanding of the factors that contribute to worker wellbeing by educating on illness/injury prevention. ? The American Council on Exercise (ACE) is a nonprofit organization committed to health and wellbeing. Utilizing the latest science, ACE provides sound exercise council for our diverse workforce. ? Duke Integrative Medicine concentrates on each person “as a whole’” to help individuals focus on optimal health and wellness. Integrative Health Coaching engages all aspects of a person—mind, spirit, body, and community—supporting individuals in making healthy lifestyle changes. ? University of Massachusetts Mindful Based Stress Reduction transforms the culture of care by creating mindfulness-based participatory medicine, founded on the convergence of modern science and contemplative practice traditions. Mindfulness is a practice of focus in which we “take pause” to pay attention to the experiences around and within us in a non-judging way. This process has been found to help in maintaining high performance in the face of and in recovering from stress—to be in the present moment.
