The international link of our forests to other parts of the world has tightened a notch, as two foresters from Armenia have come to Ontario to learn about forest conservation practices in Canada. Tree Canada, a charitable organization based in Ottawa, is facilitating an educational tour for the foresters, who will embark on a two-week tour of Ontario, meeting with professors and students at the University of Toronto, and visiting with Tree Canada and Tree Ontario to learn more about provincial and national tree planting initiatives.
The project, ‘Building International Bridges for Forest Futures,’ is funded in part by CIDA, the Canadian International Development Agency.
“This project has been a wonderful opportunity for building inernational relationships and sharing knowledge,” notes Adrina Bardekjian Ambrisil, project manager and Tree Canada Associated. “The only way we can sustain our forests is through global collaborative efforts.”
