This version of FireWorks focuses on ecological communities in the Sagebrush Ecosystem - shrublands dominated by sagebrush species.

Like all FireWorks programs, the Sagebrush Ecosystem curriculum provides students with interactive, hands-on activities to study wildland fire. It consists of one curriculum of activities and trunks of materials for educators. The curriculum is targeted at the middle school level, but can be adapted to meet the needs of all learners, including younger and older students. This curriculum is revised from select lessons in the Northern Rocky Mountains and Northern Cascades middle school curriculum, and activity numbers align with that curriculum. For additional activities, see curricula from other regions.

To learn about some of the plants, animals, and fungi that live in the Sagebrush Ecosystem, see the essays in the: FireWorks Encyclopedia
