New report describes effects of climate change on U.S. forests
Wednesday, February 6, 2013 - This week the U.S. Forest Service released the Effects of Climatic Variability and Change on Forest Ecosystems report. The report warns that big changes are in store for the nation’s forests as global warming increases wildfires and insect infestations, and generates more frequent floods and droughts. The compilation of more than 1,000 scientific studies is part of the National Climate Assessment and will serve as a roadmap for managing national forests across the country in coming years. Along with more fires and insect infestations, forests will see more flooding, erosion and sediment going into streams, where it chokes fish habitat. More droughts will make wildfires, insect infestations, and the spread of invasive species even worse.

Project WET Water Curriculum
This full-color, fully revised 592-page guide contains 64 multidisciplinary water-related activities for students from Kindergarten through 12th grade. The guide features cross-reference and planning charts, a glossary and background material on activity development and field testing. The cornerstone of Project WET is its methodology of teaching about water resources through hands-on, investigative, easy-to-use activities. Project WET activities are designed to complement existing curricula rather than displace or add additional concepts. Activities fulfill objectives and educational standards in the sciences, as well as other disciplines, from fine arts to health. Because water is ubiquitous, water-related concepts can be found in almost any field of study. In addition, the Guide has been correlated with the educational standards of most states. Activities within the Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide are universal in their methods of teaching about water. More than 40 countries in addition to the United States use Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide activities.
