YFMP – Youth Forest Monitoring Program

Youth Forest Monitoring Program (YFMP) is an innovative summer internship for students entering grades 9-12. Participants learn about forest ecology, explore their local forest lands, engage in forest health monitoring, and network with forest professionals. Areas that students monitor include lands impacted by wildfire, historic mining claims, important watersheds, grazing allotments, and recreation areas.

YFMP begins with a one-week training, after which students are divided into three teams and spend the next six weeks monitoring soil, water and weeds. Students collect, analyze, and interpret data, by working in the field, classrooms and laboratory. Field instructors supervise students, and each monitoring project is guided by a designated Forest Service scientist. Students complete the program by presenting their data and conclusions to parents, the public, and Forest Service personnel in a report presentation. Student data is then integrated with other monitoring data and used to evaluate the Forest Plan.

To apply: Postmark by April 12, 2019 the following information.

  • Contact information (email. address, and phone #)
  • School transcript
  • Letter of recommendation from a teacher
  • Cover letter describing
    • What you hope to gain by this experience
    • Special contributions you can make to this program
