Position: Ecological Forestry - Short Course, Employment & Volunteer Opportunities

Organization: Community Forests International  http://www.forestsinternational.org

Location: Sackville, New Brunswick

Dates: Aug 2 - 6, 2010

Community Forests International has been learning and

practicing a middle path between the conservation of wild

lands, and the clear-cuts of industrial logging.

Understanding that humans need to balance their approach to

nature, Community Forests International has been working to

foster relationships where human incomes and forest products

are provided while the integrity of the working and healthy

forest are valued and maintained.

While learning and growing as an organization, Community

Forests International has been in contact with some

remarkable stewards of the forest, and has drawn on the

experience of some of Atlantic Canada's finest practitioners

of ecological and conservation forestry. The wisdom

Community Forests International has gained while spending

time with those that have lived and learned from the forest

for generations has prompted the development of a short

course to extend a variety of skills and a forestlands

philosophy to others in Canada and abroad.

>From 2-6 of August, 2010, Community Forests International

will be offering their first Short Course in Ecological

Forestry in Sackville, New Brunswick. If you've spent the

summer planting trees, and are interested in learning about

a more natural process of forest restoration, or if you've

just purchased a woodlot and want to sharpen your skills,

this course could be the one for you. The course will cover

native plant and tree identification, chainsaw use and

maintenance, the principle of ecological, restoration and

conservation forestry, sawmill operation, wildcrafting and

timber framing. Please see the full course outline and
