MEDFORD, Ore. — As part of their 'Teachers on Public Lands' program, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will be offering further education to teachers at the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument. The application period starts on April 2, and will close on April 20.

The opportunity is open to any teacher, K-12. The teacher selected for the 2018 program will learn more about the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument and the BLM, including conservation efforts on public lands.

An educational stipend of $2000 will be granted to the selected teacher after the completion of 160 hours of service. They will also receive 3 graduate-level credits, valid as continuing education credits through the University of Colorado. Fees and tuition for the program are covered by 'Teachers on Public Lands' in Oregon.

There will be a final project that includes "development of curriculum-based learning," meeting both resource management and educational teaching objectives, according to a BLM statement.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land located primarily in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The agency's mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America's public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.

The application form can be found below, or at this location on the web. Applications are due by April 20, 2018.
