Looking Back, Looking Forward: The Ongoing History of Canada’s Forests.
May 16 - July 4 2012
Through the late spring and early summer, The Canadian Institute of Forestry (CIF/IFC) will be offering an interactive electronic lecture series on Canada's Forest History. Lectures will run for approximately one hour on Wednesdays at 1:30pm EST and will feature experts and practitioners from across Canada.
How do I participate?
The lectures are easy to access and efforts have been made to keep them user-friendly. Once registered, an email will be sent out to you providing the speakers' presentation slides and the step by step instructions for participation. At the time of the lecture, you simply call into the teleconference and follow along with the presenter on your computer. All that is required is a computer and a phone (preferably with a speaker).
