Welcome to the Preparing for Wildfires with Firescaping Master Gardener Training. The goal of this project is to increase southeastern WUI homeowner and community wildfire preparedness through an innovative education-based approach on fire-resistant landscaping, or firescaping. The training seeks to implement wildfire-preparedness education and outreach to communities through Master Gardeners. To achieve this goal, the project utilizes (1) an online training course for Extension educators (preparing educators to teach or host the training) and (2) a firescaping advanced training toolbox (containing all materials necessary to teach or host the training).
Please first set up a free account to access the course through the "Getting Started" tab. Next, watch the introduction video and read the online training instructions prior to beginning the course. Please note there is an order for completing the online educator training and this is detailed in the instructions. The online training, in its entirety, will take approximately 4 1/2 hours to complete. To more easily navigate the course (and not get lost on the course website), use the "bread crumbs" in the top left corner of the screen to navigate back to other parts of the course. These bread crumbs will appear on all pages.
