Sustainable Forest Management: A Workshop for Teachers
Mon, Jun 19, 2017, 11:00 AM – Fri, Jun 23, 2017, 1:00 PM EDT
This workshop will provide teachers with classroom- and field-based education related to the benefits of sustainable forest management. Participants will gain a basic understanding of forest biology and ecology, and then see it applied in actual management activities. Instruction will include visits to active logging sites and forest products companies, led by foresters working in the industry. Forestry and industry careers will be witnessed on-site. The week ends with a discussion of how these concepts can be incorporated into classroom environments. Bring your own questions and concerns to explore!
