CCFM meets in Saint Andrews, NB
Our team recently attended the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers in Saint Andrews this week for their annual forum. The forum provided an excellent opportunity to collaborate and to hear from experts from across the country as they shared their challenges and successes. These valuable insights and networking opportunities help us shape a unified vision for the future for Canadian Forestry. The wide variety of topics, presented as informal fireside chats, were enriching and inspiring. Thank you to both the CCFM and the New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Development for hosting an excellent event!

Envirothon NB, back in person!
Our team had the pleasure of volunteering and judging Envirothon NB's provincial competition May 7-8 in Sackville, NB! Hands-on learning opportunities like these are extremely valuable, and it was wonderful to see the passion for natural resources and the environment that was shared by all participants and volunteers.

If you didn't know, New Brunswick will also be hosting the International NCF-Envirothon competition in July! There's plenty of volunteering and sponsorship opportunities, so head over to https://envirothon.org/ to get involved!
