Student park ranger, Mylaina McMurray, observes a ranger educating school children about water safety at Black Butte Lake, Calif., on April 11, 2019.
Warm weather at Northern California's 22 state parks, seven state wildlife areas and nine national forests is drawing an increased number of visitors to the areas, so the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Wilderness Inquiry volunteers teamed up to educate and train nearly 300 students from Orland's Fairview and Sierra View elementary schools.
Students learned how to safely navigate waterways in canoes and save others from drowning. (U.S. Army photo by Ken Wright)
