Event description


Join us in Tumbler Ridge, the land of waterfalls and dinosaurs, for the 2017 Conference and AGM, hosted by the Tumbler Ridge Community Forest. Each year, community forest managers and board volunteers, along with forest professionals, local and provincial government representatives and academics look forward to the informative sessions and valuable networking opportunities of this event. Join us and experience BC community forest culture first hand.

Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Tumbler Ridge is the home of the UNESCO Global Geopark and the only dinosaur trackway in the world. Our hosts are sponsoring an impressive spousal and family program for a number of activities including tours of the dinosaur trackway and the museum, trips to stupendous waterfalls, golf and a river boat ride. Transportation to all activities is provided. Click here for more information and to register for the spousal and family events.
