Each coloring sheet is created from a real photograph. This photograph was provided by Detlef Maushake, the leader of the German wildfire crew “Waldbrandteam e.V.” (a non-profit NGO doing wildfire training and out-of-country response for wildfires). They also do prescribed burning activities, too!

We can’t wait to see everyone’s finished coloring, so be sure to share below or on social media (with your parent’s permission, of course)!
