On November 7th and 8th, 2017 at the Crown Plaza in Fredericton, there will be an Urban Forest Workshop. The workshop objective is to facilitate a discussion about municipal urban forests in Atlantic Canada. To share master plans and various strategies/ unique initiatives used to improve and maintain healthy urban forests now and into the future.
There is a great line of speakers from across North America and from the locally community and this would be a great opportunity to earn CFE Credits.
For NBFTA members the overall course would be worth 13 credits of category 1, another 1 credit of category 1 for the evening dinner and then the tour would be worth 1 hours for each 3 hours of the tour for category 1.
