2019 EOMF/CIF DECEMBER FOREST SEMINAR
An end of year celebration of our forests 

Wednesday, Dec 11th
"From Seed to Home: The Full Story of Building with Sustainable Wood"

Registration is now open! The Eastern Ontario Model Forest, in partnership with the Ottawa section of the Canadian Institute of Forestry, has developed a great program for our December Forest Lecture. We have used the term "an end of year celebration of our forests". In addition the program includes a full meal which provides plenty of opportunity for a good social.

This year's 
seminar will focus on telling the full story of how building with wood is the most sustainable option, from the time the tree is planted in the forest to when the final product is used for the build. We will hear how a forest can be managed for multiple forest values such as recreation, wildlife and clean water, all while providing a continuous supply of wood to feed the local mill. We will also hear how building codes are changing to allow for taller wood structures, and how new technology can produce stronger wood products with less to meet these demands. This will be a great opportunity for those who wish to understand why building with wood is a good choice, from both an ecological and engineering perspective.

A word about the Eastern Ontario Model Forest. We receive no government funding at all. With a small, dedicated staff and a number of volunteers we (almost) make financial ends meet by putting on events such as these, and through our FSC certification program and our Forest Health Network. Our work is important for the health of the southern Ontario forests. You who attend events such as this and our Winter Woodlot Conference in February are a huge help to both contribute to our (developing) financial health and help contribute to the vital forest conservation efforts of the model forest. Thank you for both choosing to be at this Forest lecture, and thus being in a "conservation partnership" with us.
