NSFA

Nova Scotia Forestry Association

About Us
Originally established in the early 1940’s, the Nova Scotia Forestry Association (NSFA) was formed to help promote wise management and conservation of Nova Scotia’s forests through education and communication. Over the past 80 years, the NSFA has evolved – we no longer see the forest as just trees; we take into account wildlife, soils, watercourses and other vegetation, and strive to promote wise management and conservation of the whole NS forest environment. The Nova Scotia Envirothon program is the NSFA’s longest running program. The NSFA’s goal is to ensure that natural resources education, with a specific focus on forestry, is available to every student. The NSFA wants to provide young Nova Scotians with exposure to forestry and natural resources education, which will instill a knowledge and interest that will enable them to grow up contributing to a society that is prosperous, productive, healthy and economically sustainable.

What We do
The NSFA is striving towards working as an education liaison. We want to help deliver educational programs and resources that enable students to better understand of the forest environment, industry and associated career opportunities. We are currently seeking pilot project opportunities. We would like work together with various grade level teachers to find alternative ways to achieve the school’s learning outcomes. We would also like to assist with brining in resource professionals, setting up field trips, etc. If you are interested in working with the NSFA, we want to hear from you.
