Teachers’ Tour

Teaching teachers about sustainable forestry

The South Carolina Sustainable Forestry Teachers’ Tour is a five-day in-person workshop, offered annually in June, that provides educators with an unbiased look into sustainable forestry and its impact on our economy, environment, and quality of life. The tour takes teachers to various forest product mills, public and private forests, historic sites and forest harvesting operations. Educators will learn from professionals about current conservation issues, sustainable forest management, history, mathematics, engineering, technology, and much more!
