Forestry Institute for Teachers (FIT) is a week-long Professional Development Program providing cross-curricular training in NGSS Curricula.

About this event

The California Society of American Foresters invites you to participate in the 28th year of the Forestry Institute for Teachers (forestryinstitute.org). At FIT, natural resource professionals and our credentialed education team will bring the forest into your classroom using NGSS-aligned curricula.

PLEASE NOTE: Session rosters are limited to ensure a high quality experience for participants. We do our best to accommodate everyone's first choice of location. If you plan to attend with other educators from your school or district, please let us know in the comments.


How much does it cost to attend FIT?

Room, board, and curriculum materials are covered for first time participants. Participants are only responsible for personal travel to the session location and the registration fee. 

What is the refund policy? 

There is no refund for the application fee.   The application fee helps to support upkeep of the FIT website and the registration process.  

Is FIT just for California teachers?

FIT is only available to California educators. The program is funded through donations and grants from federal, state, and local organizations to enhance environmental literacy throughout California. Furthermore, each session uses education material and curricula specific to the local forest ecosystem of the host location (Humboldt County, Shasta County, Tuolumne County). FIT-like programs are offered in other states.

When will I hear back?

Applications are processed on a rolling basis. Early registrants can expect confirmation by Mid-March. All other applications will be reveived on a monthly basis until sessions are full.

Can I attend FIT again?

Past FIT participants may repeat if they will pay the participation cost of $950.
