Guest speakers for educators

Educators can reach out to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) contacts below to enquire about having a forestry professional speak with their students about sustainable forest management.

SFI Implementation Committees work with forestry and professional associations, universities, government agencies, landowner groups, conservation groups, and many others to support community outreach and education programs.
