Small Farms Resources at NC A&T State University

Woods workings

Next summer, N.C. Cooperative Extension will have three academies for high school teachers interested in adding a working knowledge of sustainable forestry to their repertoires. The first three-day “Sustainable Forestry Teachers’ Academy” will be in New Bern June 15-18; the mountain edition will be June 22-26 in Asheville; and the Piedmont Academy will be July 7-10 in Asheboro. Teachers selected for the academies will visit a variety of forests and lumber mills, and get overviews of forest management philosophies and paper, furniture and other manufacturing reliant on forest products. The academies will also include tours of museums and environmental learning centers, and hikes through state and experimental forests.  (Applicants should not have health concerns preventing them from walking and other moderate physical demands.)

Registration will remain open until April 10, 2015. Application review is ongoing, and many unquestionably qualified applicants are notified they’ve been accepted well before the registration closing date.  All applicants will be notified of their status (selected or place on the waiting list) by April 17.
