“Forests: A Way of Life” is the theme for the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) Annual Conference, coming to Ottawa from September 27 to 29. The event targets those who use or work with forests, including producers, customers, harvesting professionals, and academics. It focuses on the important benefits that can be gained from ensuring forests are responsibly managed—including some relevant to the built environment, such as the creation of sustainable communities.

The event’s sessions include:

A field tour of Kenauk Nature, a 26,000-ha (65,000-acre) private fish and game reserve in Montebello, Qué., is also available, with tour options including forest management and research sites. For more information or to register, visit the event’s site.
