Managing the Forest for Multiple Values
Canadian Institute of Forestry – NL Section & Registered Professional Foresters Association
55th Annual General Meeting and Conference

Terra Nova Resort, Port Blandford, NL
About the CIF/IFC:
The Canadian Institute of Forestry (CIF) is the national voice of forest practitioners. Formed in 1908, the Institute represents foresters, forest technologists and technicians, ecologists, biologists, geographers, educators, scientists and many others with a professional interest in forestry. The Institute's mission is to provide national leadership in forestry, promote competence among forestry professionals, and foster public awareness of Canadian and international forestry issues.
About the conference:
The values derived from our forests are more than just wood for pulp & paper or commodity lumber. The forests are managed to provide multiple values for numerous forest stakeholders. Managing our forest sustainably (environmentally, socially and economically) for multiple values is no easy task. The 55th Annual General Meeting and Conference allows NL forest practitioners to get together, share information and learn from each other.
About the program:
The program will include local forest industry representation, and discussion topics will focus on value added products, non-timber forest products, recreation, First Nations values, ecological goods and services and much more. These topics will make for an informative day of presentations and discussions.

The Lumberjack Challenge, organized by Model Forest of Newfoundland and Labrador is a fast paced, head to head competition featuring several traditional lumberjack events that takes place during the East West North Expo. Teams of three will test their skills in several events including cross cut, buck saw, run/cut/split, stock saw, hot saw, cookie cut, and kettle boil. New teams are always encouraged and no previous competition experience is required. An experienced competitor, Tara Morgan, encourages anyone with an interest to come out and register and says “People shouldn’t be discouraged by their size, the small person with good technique and a steady hand can easily compete with a larger person relying on strength”. Competitors that prove their worth will take home $1500 in cash prizes!!
As part of the just concluded National Forest Week 2010, the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Natural Resources and The Model Forest of Newfoundland and Labrador announces a fun way for the public to help us recognize National Forestry Week, enjoy the Newfoundland and Labrador outdoors and win prizes too!
The forest and forest industries of Canada, which are an integral part of our provinces and nations history, life and economy were celebrated during the week of Sept 19-25 and this ongoing contest is a way for the public to actively participate.
The GPS coordinates and tips on finding the caches are shown below and the contest will kick off in September and run until Remembrance Day, Nov 11th, 2010, which gives plenty of time for all.
