Event Details

NOTE:  DUE TO THE FEDERAL SEQUESTER, SOME OF THE FUNDS TO SUPPORT THE FIT PROGRAM FROM THE USDA FOREST SERVICE ARE NOT SECURED.

UNFORTUNATELY, BECAUSE OF THIS UNCERTAINTY IT IS NECESSARY CLOSE ALL SESSIONS AND TO PLACE APPLICATIONS RECEIVED AFTER MAY 10TH ON A SPECIAL PROGRAM WAITLIST (THIS IS DIFFERENT THAN THE EXISTING SITE WAITLISTS THAT HAVE BEEN CREATED TO PROVIDE FOR APPLICANT WITHDRAWALS).  THOSE WHO APPLY AFTER MAY 10TH THAT DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN ONE OF THE FIT SESSIONS WILL RECEIVE A REFUND OF THEIR APPLICATION FEE.




The Northern California Society of American Foresters invites you to participate in the 21st year of the Forestry Institute for Teachers (FIT).

There are 4 1-week sessions scheduled at 4 different locations. 

PLEASE NOTE: Each session can accommodate a roster maximum of 30-50 participants.  50-80 "tickets" are allocated to each session because experience has shown that 20-30 applicants withdraw prior to the session, so it is necessary to overbook.   Once the roster maximum is exceeded for a session the applicant may be assigned to a wait list.  When the roster maximum is exceeded then the application criteria, which may be seen at http://forestryinstitute.org/application.html, are applied to determine who is accepted.

If you have questions please call the FIT Helpline at 1-888-348-7765.

NOTE:  FIT is free to 1st time participants, though they must cover their personal travel costs to the session locationPast FIT participants may repeat if they will pay the participation cost of $1,000.
