Supporting Education

The FBCWA has supported education through scholarships since 2001 by awarding two scholarships, one for $2000 and another for $1000 each year. Students related to a woodlot licensee and/or private forest land owner or students sponsored by a woodlot licensee attending post secondary education including the trades, preferably in a natural resource related area of study, are eligible for these awards.

The deadline for 2023 Scholarship applications has now passed. Stay tuned for 2024 dates!

Fieldtrips (aka “Walk in the Woods”)

Woodlot licences are often located close to communities and schools and play host to fieldtrips for students of all ages. An educational “walk in the woods” can include lessons as simple as identifying tree species and counting tree rings and as complex as managing watersheds in a sustainable working forest.

To learn more about the benefits of fieldtrips check out our video “Walk in the Woods”.
