New Tech Students Win CA Forestry Challenge Championship

e-Connections Post

Congratulations to David Candia, Michael Rafanan, and Joshua Williams of Sacramento New Technology High School for taking first place at the California Forestry Challenge Championship. This is the second year in a row that the New Tech team has won the championship!

The students wrote a silvicultural prescription for the Kinland Forest, a privately owned tract of land. The proposal aims to help control growth, composition, health and quality of the forest. Their recommendations were practical, economically sound, and in compliance with the California Forest Practice Rules. 

The Forestry Challenge is an academic event for high school students in technical forestry and current forestry topics. Click here to read more about the challenge.
