CIF-IFC offers Teachers’ Forestry Tour for educators in Prince Albert

June 23, 2022  By Canadian Institute of Forestry

Calling all teachers and educators in the Prince Albert area! If you are looking for a unique opportunity to bring forestry into your classroom, the Canadian Institute of Forestry/Institut forestier du Canada (CIF-IFC) is organizing a Teachers’ Forestry Tour and you are invited to register!

Hosted in collaboration with the CIF-IFC Saskatchewan Section, the Teachers’ Forestry Tour will take place from July 27-28, 2022, in Prince Albert, Sask.

With funding in part from the Government of Canada, the CIF-IFC will be hosting and coordinating Teachers’ Forestry Tours across Canada over a two-year period (2021-2023).

Teachers and educators from all levels are welcome to attend. Through a mix of presentations and hands-on learning in the field, this tour offers a valuable professional development opportunity for teachers and educators. The tour will include an opportunity to meet professionals and practitioners in the field of forest science, research and management, and a visit to forestry operations and product mills.


The tour will inform teachers about basic forestry concepts, including sustainable forest management, Indigenous participation in forestry/traditional ecological knowledge and the links between forests and climate change.

Formed in 1908, the CIF-IFC is the national voice of forest practitioners and many others with an interest in forestry and forests. The Institute strives to provide national leadership, promote competence, and foster public awareness of Canadian and international forestry/forest issues.
