Forestry Institute for Teachers 2017
NOTE: THE SHASTA COUNTY FIT SESSION DATES HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO JULY 2-8 DUE TO FACILITY AVAILABILITY.
The Northern California Society of American Foresters invites you to participate in the 25th year of the Forestry Institute for Teachers (FIT).
Come as a TEAM! Register as a Team. The team leader sets up the Team with a Team Name (school name for example) and then other team members select from the list of team names.
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 will 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 email here.
What is the refund policy?
There is no refund for the application fee. The intent of the application fee is to reduce the >30% withdrawal rate. The application fee fund supports about 3 participants each year.
Can I attend FIT again?
FIT is free to 1st time participants, though they must cover their personal travel costs to the session location. Past FIT participants may repeat if they will pay the participation cost of $800.
