Forests Worth Knowing

2024 Atlantic Teachers’ Tour

AUGUST 12-15, 2024 

Fredericton, New Brunswick

Professional Development Opportunity for Teachers

What teachers enjoy most about the program...

"The opportunity to visit the woods, mill tour and blueberry crop visit. Networking and meeting educators from the Atlantic Provinces."
"Learning more about what the forest industry does to protect/preserve ecosystems, species at risk, etc. I was not aware of the extent of planning that is involved even before the first tree is cut!"
"The frequency that we got into the field to see and experience the various sites was fantastic. And to do it on a very well planned out schedule with such awesome planners and participants made it even better!"
