This website report has been prepared for Bernard Bormann, USDA Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station, by Bob Zybach, Oregon Websites and Watersheds Project, Inc.(Zybach 2008). The principal purpose of this site is to detail and demonstrate a strategy to complete a cooperative interactive educational website for the proposed post-Biscuit Fire management study (Bormann et al. 2004). Initial cooperators for the website are the two organizations just listed.
The intent of this project is to design and create a stable, independent website that will serve as a principal source of post-Biscuit Fire data for study collaborators and interested public, as an interactive “civil science” and monitoring tool, and as a basis for formal science research and teaching curricula. This draft website provides a conceptual strategy for achieving those results.
The goals of this project are to design and create a website that can serve as: 1) a principal source of project data for study collaborators, students, teachers, local schools and residents, and interested public, 2) an interactive civil science and monitoring tool, and 3) a basis for formal and informal science research and teaching curricula.
