CAREERS partners with a range of organizations in what’s called the Forestry Futures Alliance. Together, we work to increase education, awareness, and employment opportunities in the forestry industry. To learn more, visit: https://forestryfuturesalliance.ca/
Here is a series of videos from Inside Education related to Alberta’s forests. The videos introduce Alberta’s forest ecology, forest products development, and human impacts on the forest landscape. The videos are available in English and in French.
Here’s a list of additional resources and activities provided by Inside Education that can be used to further your knowledge of our forests:
(Description: This activity asks students to go outside and measure some trees in their community. Students use measurements to come up with a rough estimate of the carbon that is stored within these trees. They will also explore how the amount of carbon stored in trees relates to the amount of carbon emitted by day-to-day activities and the co-benefits of urban forests.)
(Description: Full-page descriptions and colour photos of a variety of common species are included in this field guide. Easy identification is ensured with the dichotomous key and glossary.)
(Description: This series of five short readers contain real-life case studies and discussion questions related to Alberta’s forests: climate change, forest changes, forest careers, forest management and forest economics.)
(Description: This video series features five residents of the boreal forest who share their love of the land and of living and working in Alberta’s north. This resource investigates careers that span science, technology, engineering and education.)
