Through the Sustainable Forestry Tour, educators are exposed to the Project Learning Tree (PLT) curriculum and the social, economic, and ecological aspects of sustainable forestry. They are immersed in sustainable forestry issues with valuable information and concepts they can take back to their classrooms. During the three-day program educators visit private, state, and federal forests; tour sawmills and active harvesting operations; and learn about forests directly from natural resource professionals.
Supporting the SFI Standard
The project will support SFI 2010-2014 Standard Objective 17: Community Involvement in the Practice of Sustainable Forestry, including Performance Measure 17.2 requiring that program participants support and promote public outreach, education and involvement related to sustainable forestry management.
In addition to the Idaho Forest Foundation, partners include the Idaho SFI Implementation Committee.
