National Forest Week 2016 Sponsors
A huge thank you to all our generous sponsors.
BC National Forest Week Coalition
The BC NFW Coalition was established in 2013 with the overarching goal of showing young people in BC that they can enjoy time spent outdoors and learn more about the different uses of BC’s forests, including wood products, jobs, recreation and spiritual values. The Coalition includes representatives from the Canadian Institute of Forestry (CIF) BC Sections, Association of BC Forest Professionals (ABCFP), Truck Loggers Association (TLA), FPInnovations, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, BC Timber Sales, Federation of BC Woodlot Associations, Academic Institutions, and a number of forest products and consulting companies. Our focus is to facilitate local NFW organizers.
What do we do?
National Forest Week is our opportunity to rally the troops, wave the flag, and showcase the high level of professionalism used in managing the forest resources of BC. We seek to capitalize on our forest sector network to the fullest. The objectives of the BC NFW Coalition are:
- To develop a coordinated strategic approach to a provincial NFW program;
- To maximize the benefits of local events for the provincial forestry and forest management sectors;
- To reach as many communities, school children, and citizens as possible; and
- To develop standard communication and news releases for broad provincial application and use by local event organizations.
