ForestEDWest III (January 24-27/08)
"Embracing Our Landscape"
In 2004, Alex Drummond (U of A) and Steve McIsaac (Inside Education) invited forest educators from Western Canada to come together and share their forest education success stories and/or forestry knowledge as a means to promote forest education. The location, Banff Center, was the perfect setting and the endeavor was a “tree-mendous” success. Everyone agreed that we should stay connected and meet again in two years time. So…. in 2006, Alex, Steve and many other very dedicated people, put together ForestEDWest II. Again it was held at the Banff Conference Center and again it was a “tree-mendous” success.
This brings us to ForestEDWest III, to be held in January 2008. Sandy McKellar (Truck Loggers Association) and Debbie Sluggett (Okanagan-Columbia Forest Education) agreed to co-chair the event with help/support/encouragement from Steve and Alex. A committee has been formed, a location has been chosen and ForestEDWest III is under construction. We hope that you will attend, and possibly even volunteer to present, so that BC will follow in the successful footsteps of our Albertan counterparts.
