We will let the forest be our classroom for this exciting professional development program that will put wildlife at the forefront of discussion for three days of experiential learning. Using biodiversity as our index we will meet with experts to gain insights into how human uses and management of the forest influence wildlife species and their habitats. We will learn about leading research, innovations, indigenous wisdom, best practices in land use, habitat reclamation/restoration, conservation and environmental stewardship.
We will explore how science, industry, government, academia, the ENGO community, and Alberta’s Indigenous communities work collaboratively to help support the future of Alberta species. The program will feature real-world, on-the-ground innovations and solutions aimed at helping protect forest biodiversity and critical habitat while sustaining a viable forestry sector in Alberta.
You will leave the program with a deeper understanding and balanced perspective of current and emerging forest and wildlife topics, an expanded network of educators and leave with a toolbox full of learning resources to bring the topic to life in your classroom.
