Sustainable Forestry Tour
for Teachers and Counselors
June 23-27, 2014

Through the Sustainable Forestry Tour teachers and school counselors explore the social, economic and ecological aspects of sustainable forestry. Once the participant arrives at the tour, s/he is treated as a VIP! They are immersed in sustainable forestry issues with valuable information, concepts and activities to bring back to school. Our goal is to have participants visit private, state and federal forests; tour wood and paper mills and a seedling nursery; see an active timber harvesting operation; walk in managed forest stands of differing ages; and experience proven classroom activities to address tour topics with their students. They will learn directly from the natural resource professionals who care for our forests, and those who provide products we all use every day. Participants leave with abundant information and resources to explore sustainable forestry and related careers with their students.
