Environmental & Forest Education in the Classroom Report
The long-term well being of our forests is dependent upon engaging and fostering future environmental stewards. However, reaching youth through the school system is becoming increasingly challenging, and many organizations across the province and country have noted barriers in delivering meaningful and sustainable education programs.
In response, Forests Ontario, Project Learning Tree Canada (PLT Canada) and the Canadian Institute of Forestry / Institut forestier du Canada facilitated a workshop in April 2019 to discuss the state of environmental and forest education in Ontario, explore the barriers to program delivery, and uncover opportunities to increase participation and impact.
A Summary Report of the workshop and our key findings was published by Forests Ontario in November 2019.
