CIF AGM & Conference
Lake of the Woods Section Teachers Tour
The Lake of the Woods Section is hosting a Teachers Tour in Dryden on October 27th! The goal of this program is to educate the educators. We will be discussing the concepts of sustainable forest management and how it is regulated in Ontario, and bringing them out to the field to see forest operations first hand, as well as teach some hands-on skills. At the end, teachers will be given an information packet with some tangible ways to incorporate what they learned into the Ontario curriculum. This program is being offered for teachers in the Dryden and Sioux Lookout area this year, and will be moved around our region in the years to come!
