In-Person Drone Skills Workshops
July 16 &17, Tulelake, California
This workshop will provide two one-day workshops (beginning mapping and intermediate data analysis) for hands-on training for agricultural mapping. The target audience is growers, agronomists, researchers, and service providers who are interested in the data side of drone technology for measuring and monitoring crops throughout the growing season.
August 2 & 3rd, Truckee, California
The workshop will provide two days of rapid hands-on training for mapping forests and potential fuels for wildfires. The target audience is forest scientists, members of Cal Fire, Forest Service, BLM, water districts, relevant NGOs (e.g. conservancies, camps, open space), and land owners seeking to learn drone technology for monitoring forests and defensible space in California.

    Professional-level Instruction
    While conducting science in the field as a PhD in ecology, Dr. Gregory Crutsinger caught the drone bug, and began testing the use of UAVs in experimental research. He made the leap from academia to the drone industry, working for some of the leading drone hardware and software companies. He founded Scholar Farms as a commercial drone training company to meet the growing demand for professional training on the data side of UAVs. 

    Immediately following the launch of Scholar Farms, devastating wildfires began to hit California.  Greg has volunteered his time as a drone data analyst for public safety drone teams mapping in the aftermath of the Tubbs, Carr, and Camp Fire.
